Day 12 - Glasgow to Edinburgh (100km)

Changed plans, we decided to follow the canal paths to Edinburgh. Set off East with a stiff tailwind and bumped our way surprisingly quickly over the gravel tow paths, all the while fretting Reuben's worn rear tyre would give out at any moment.
We rode past the Falkirk Wheel and into a 500 odd meter canal tunnel that was dark, cold, wet and slippery where GoPro decided to try to commit suicide (see video below soon). Stopped to chat to two old fishermen, accents so thick we gave up and rode on. Approaching Edinburgh Anne-Marie cracked it because the paths where so crap so we found our way to the main road and an awesome Scottish cyclist took us under his wing leading us the final 20km right to our B&B's front door.
B&B was amazing, opulent rooms, complementary port, chocolates and fantastic service all round.

(Pictures to follow Italy is stingy with it's free wifi data limits)
