  • UK 2007: Edinburgh (Part one)

    Posted on October 4th, 2007 Jeff Keller No comments

    I’ve got so many photos from the fabulous city of Edinburgh that I have to
    split them into three entries! They’re presented (more or less) in the order
    in which they were taken, and forgive me if I forgot what the sights were called
    — it was sort of a whirlwind trip.

    When I first arrived in Edinburgh I thought that this was the castle… as I
    later discovered, it’s not.

    The building on the left (with the clocktower) is a hotel. Not sure what’s on
    the right.

    At the end of the Royal Mile is Holyrood Park, where you can hike to the top
    of Arthur’s Seat, which offers a sweeping view over Edinburgh

    Looking back down the hill as I work my way up toward the "seat"

    Wildflowers along the way

    Getting there… this is a grueling hike by the way, though some routes seem
    to be less strenuous than others

    I made it! Here’s a view of the old city, including the castle

    Looking the other direction toward what looks like farmland

    Coming back down the hill now, near sunset

    What gallery would be complete without a door photo?

    The Royal Mile

    Unique building on the Royal Mile

    Nice old buildings

    I think this is a war memorial in front of City Hall?

    Nice old church which has been turned into a cafe (bah)

    One of many pubs on the Royal Mile

    There’s more Edinburgh in part
