My Magical Quarter Century started on the 26th on a 9 hour Megabus ride. I arrived in Edinburgh on the 27th at just around 2AM, with a three hour gap until the Scottish Citylink bus left for Glasgow. Because of this, I didn't feel the need to get accommodation, so I walked around the city. I was surprised by how close the Conan Doyle bar was to the bus station, as well as the Sherlock Holmes statue erected in remembrance of Sir ACD (he was born in a building close to the statue, though not in its original state).
The bus ride to Glasgow from Edinburgh was very short. Not just because it was only about an hour, but since a child was crying for about 3/4 of the Megabus ride (my migraine disappeared when the child left at Newcastle), I was unable to sleep then, and thus crashed on the bus to Glasgow.
I didn't get to spend a whole lot of time there, less than a half day, so I explored the Necropolis, and Merchant City, which has loads of shops.
