Day 1: Our Scotland tour started with a direct flight from Cologne to Edinburgh. At Edinburgh airport we got our hire car - a Vauxhall Zafira - and we drove up to Dundee. Because of a mistake in here maps we found Duntrune Terrace but not Duntrune House. So, we had to call Duntrune House and Berry took us from Duntrune Terrace to the B&B.

Day 2: From Dundee we drove to St. Andrews where we visited the Eden Mill Distillery and the city. Then we visited the fishing village Anstruther and the Falkland Palace. Our day trip ended in Dundee.
