Castles and hillforts

Between yesterday and today, I’ve managed to get a bit of walking and sightseeing in. It’s been a great way to spend my first weekend of 2015 – and my last weekend before heading back to the office tomorrow after two weeks’ holiday.

I do admit that yesterday’s visit to the Edinburgh Castle was a little more melancholy than I’d anticipated, as was today’s hike to the top of Castlelaw Hill. But I managed to get out and enjoy some fresh air, and I did enjoy myself, even if not as much as I’d have liked.

There’s a lot on my mind right now though, and in a way, the melancholy mood has meant I’ve been in a place to contemplate.

Anyhow, I’m hopeful that the fresh air and exercise will help to elevate my mood – and that it will help get me excited about tomorrow’s return to the office and Tuesday’s return to the gym. In the meantime, here are some photos for you to enjoy from my weekend of visiting castles and hillforts!
