Our third stop on the trip was Edinburgh, Scotland. We again took the East Coast Rail from York. We spent two days and two nights here, and I loved it. I thought it was a beautiful place, lots of sights, very clean, and lots of interesting history. Definitely my favourite place in the UK (Matt says I would have liked London more if it was not 35+ degrees every day and it was not so unbearable to be outside in the humidity, haha).
The Royal Mile
If you want to see churches, go to the UK and France!
Matt in front of Edinburgh Castle
Can't remember which King this is...
Walk up from the Grassmarket area (with a nice park that is supposedly where lots of bodies are buried...the grass is so green there...makes sense!)
Edinburgh understands my love of colourful buildings
Holyrood Castle - Charles and Camilla where there this day, but like Kate in Kensington, they did not answer...
Day 5 iPhone - our hotel (used the Ibis chain - Center South Bridge - very modern), lunch at Angels with Bagpipes, scary church at night, pretty terraced cafe, more graves at night, City of the Dead "double dead" ghost tour (very creepy).
Edinburgh castle (going in this time)
View of the city from the castle walls
I love the castle village
Oldest structure in Edinburgh - St. Margaret's Chapel
Why did the Queen get the key to the city so many times? Do they change the locks a lot?
Interesting display of weaponry in The Great Hall
I like the Scottish guards' uniforms better than the London ones...sorry London. Also they get weapons.
Matt taking in the view...plus a canon...
Okay, seriously, this castle is awesome.
Perfect place to take a break from the heat
Damn me wearing a white skirt...
Toronto needs more monuments in the middle of the city
Not just in Greece!
Took this right before the grass was cut
Hello again, Holyrood! Hill to Arthur's seat in the background too (Matt ran it the next morning).
Scotch Whisky Experience tour and tasting
Day 6 iPhone - Edinburgh Castle, McPherson hunting tartan, dinner at Castle Terrace (Michelin starred and so good), Scotch Whisky tasting, run up to Arthur's seat
