Today’s views are of the neighborhood that I have been in since Monday. There have been so many things to see and here is a sample of the city.
The requisite view of the surrounding countryside as we come in for a landing.
This is a shot of street where the apartment we stayed is located. The entrance is below grade through the gate which is just after the stairs.
This is a view of Edinburgh taken from Calton Hill. It was taken at 9:45 pm and the sun was just beginning to set.
This is a photo taken at Edinburg Castle. The young, serious, well dressed, military man is in charge of shooting the 1:00 cannon (which is done daily) which you can see in the background. The other guy looks like a writer or homeless person to me.
This is a shot of the castle. The day was spectacular.
A view of Edinburgh from the castle. The Firth (inlet of the sea) of Forth is in the background
The botanical gardens in Edinburgh are vast and interesting. Here is a photo of giant lily pads.
This is Hoyroodhouse, the ceremonial palace of Queen Elizabeth.
The Holyroodhuse Abby ruins. This Catholic church was destroyed in 1133.
This is my attempt at art. A shot of the Edinburgh Castle taken at night with a view of an old town street.
St Giles Church which is the home church of Scotland.
An inside photo of St. Giles.
The National Gallery of Scotland.
A shot of a typical street.
The Lord Nelson memorial.
The National Monument. (which was never finished)
I hope you enjoyed the tour.
