Day Nine: To Dunfermline (from Mull to Oban to Glasgow to Dunfermline by minibus, ferry, train, and minivan again)
Again: Dave took us via car to an early ferry to Oban, where we waited to get on the train to Dunfermline through Glasgow, catch another train to Dunfermline.
Dunfermline was a "suburb" of Edinburgh. We got off the train (John and I) at the Edinburgh airport, and got our Citroen minivan for the day. Exquisite! I drove for the week, escorting people around, listening to conversations, and enjoying the day with all those who I drove.
The "castle" (above is the church where Robert the Bruce's body is buried, with his heart in Melrose Abbey), was grand. 30 rooms+ Each student had room to spread out. Dinner was delicious. We discovered that Asda is England's Wal Mart.
A beautiful, long day.
