We departed Edinburgh early to include a full day of some really cool stuff. We had earlier purchased the Historic Scotland Explore Pass. We got the 7-Day pass since we figured it was the better value. In just the first two days we had already recouped our initial cost and with five days left to explore we planned to make the most of it. Our first stop was a true gem. Aberdour Castle.
The castle has both an intact section and a portion of the attached abbey that is in ruins. The gardens were beautiful.
