15th October 1944 - Edinburgh

Lovely day.  Proposition made to go to Roslin Castle this afternoon.

Went out on very crowded bus.  City full of wandering crowds.  Got to chapel about 3.30.  Chapel utterly delightful – what a place this church would have been had it been completed.  Then to see the Castle, built in extraordinary manner at the side of a cliff.  Upper part being lived in, and used as a tearoom.  Went through the lower floors, weird galleries and vaulted rooms etc. but nothing of the same sort of feeling as Craig Millar.

Back 5.30pm full of girls who had been out riding, very smart.

Spent very. pleasant evening, reading and writing.
