More from Tom
By Tom Allin
We overslept this morning – I set my alarm for 7:30 PM instead of 7:30 AM. I was awake about two minutes before the owner of the Horse and Hound knocked on our door at 9:00 AM letting us know we were late for breakfast. However, by 10:00 we were driving the winding single lane roads with abbeys to see and Edinburgh to sleep as our goals for the day.
We enjoyed the Horse and Hound Pub because of its name not its small room. However, we thought the small room was a great room because it was the only room within 25 miles or more that was available to two Americans who aren’t used to making reservations more than 24 to 48 hours in advance. The pub had beer and pub food which means the beer was good and the food was OK.
Leaving Horse and Hound we had less than an eight-mile journey which I drove in less than 30 minutes. What was amazing about this trip was I made no wrong turns and there was a parking space in front of the abbey ruins – I am not sure which was the bigger miracle.
