It's time for the next part of my weekend trip to Linlithgow! In case you didn't see my last post, I visited my friend Heather last weekend, and she was a wonderful hostess who had planned tons of fun activities. On Sunday, we were up rather early, ready for another day of adventures. After having breakfast and getting ready, we drove to Cockleroy Hill which we then walked up to admire the gorgeous view. We were able to see all the way to Falkirk and the Kelpies in one direction, and in the other we could even see the sea! I love how the Scottish landscape is full of mountains and hills.

Once our legs were tired and our stomachs felt a bit empty, we drove to The Cupcake Café, where we had soup for lunch followed by some wonderful cupcakes. They had a wide range of flavours, like chocolate orange, cherry bakewell, red velvet, raspberry and white chocolate, lemon, and all sorts, so choosing a flavour was incredibly difficult, but in the end I opted for a coffee and walnut cupcake, which was delicious. If you're ever in the Linlithgow/Livingston, I highly recommend you check it out!

After lunch we went to South Queensferry, which is a very cute little town right next to the two Forth Bridges. The red bridge, featured in the photos above, is for the railway and looked spectacular sticking out from the little town. After a stroll through South Queensferry we headed back to the house. We were both pretty shattered after two days full of sightseeing, so the rest of the Sunday afternoon was spent lounging in front of the telly, and then having some dinner. It was truly a lovely weekend, and I was sad to go when I took the train back to Stirling in the evening!

Love, Mimmi.
