Hi, everyone! We returned from our trip to Scotland on Saturday. We had amazing and wonderful weather almost the entire 11 days. The best weather I've experienced in Scotland during my six times visiting. We stayed in Edinburgh for three days at the beginning. We walked five or six miles most every day and visited lots of amazing and beautiful sites. I took over 6500 photos during the entire trip so I have not even had time to look at most of them yet. Here are a few I took in Edinburgh. The first few are from our walk down the street from our hotel on Haymarket. Then we walked through Princes Street Gardens where I photographed these roses and a view up to Edinburgh Castle. Please click on the photos to enlarge them. That first day we toured inside Edinburgh Castle too. I'll share those pics later.
