I was able to join the Tour in Edinburgh. Here are some of my photos:

Marc Aylott, my daughter Tania, and I were the welcoming committee at the Edinburgh Hotel. With the help of the Porter, Shaun, we got luggage unloaded and batched 5 Astons for Marc to lead them round to the reserved NCP parking.

What a view from the hotel window.   20190607_174234.jpg
Dinner at Edinburgh Castle. The Master of Ceremonies was 'addressing the Haggis' and had us all laughing.   20190607_211615.jpg  20190607_211904.jpg  20190607_212012.jpg 
After dinner, we moved to the Great Hall to be greeted by this pipe and drum band.  20190607_234026.jpg
On Saturday, Aston Martin Edinburgh welcomed us.  I took advantage of the option to go for a test drive in the DBS Superleggera.

Looks fabulous 👍
I didn’t realise there’d be so many attendees!

We are just back from celebrating Suzanne’s Parents’ Diamond Wedding Anniversary on an Adriatic cruise or we would have been amongst the “exalted throng”. Would have ticked several bucket lists points too: Edinburgh, Edinburgh Castle, Britannia and of course touring Blighty with our AMOC chums.👍

I have heard from friends who did go, that it was exceptionally well organised and executed - I suppose that must have been down to Christine Howson’s ability to commmunicate with the people north of the border. 😉
And Marc Aylott’s “sheepdog” skills.👍

Well done again, Christine & Marc.🥂

Anne, I love your point about the clocks.😉......” and Her Majesty disembarked and time stopped still”...😃
