What happens over two days in Edinburgh?
I had an opportunity in early November to visit a friend in Edinburgh, Scotland; the city was a place I’d been looking forward to visiting for some time.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone the weather was cool, wet, grey, and windy … except when it was cool, dry, clear, and windy. The weather summary might have appeared something like: “mostly cloudy with rainshowers, accompanied by fresh westerlies and occasional clear spells.”
But coming from Vancouver, Canada, I really should be made of sterner stuff. Besides, the Old and New Town areas in Edinburgh were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.
Here are a few highlights:
Haggis with neeps and tatties
A stop at Holyrood Park for …
… a walk below Salisbury Crags
End-to-end on the Royal Mile
Getting to the heart of Midlothian
Up to Calton Hill
A kilted Scot on the bagpipes
Fish and chips, cold Guinness
Days must give way to nights
I made the photos above with a 4th-generation iPod Touch and a Canon EOS450D during 7–8 November 2012. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
