EDINBURGH ...


Dear readers, this week, E is for *E*dinburgh, Scotland...

Images of Edinburgh are so familiar in both film and print that I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves:

The Castle



And military tattoo (above top & below)

Royal Mile with St Giles

Princes Street

Victoria Street, Grass Market

The Forth Railway Bridge
Gardens

And, finally, not forgetting Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond's current aim at independence: 




And, finally, thank you to all our dear readers who visited or commented and our very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!

Enjoy!

XOXO NORA & LOLA:)

I have a friend from middle school that left Canada and married a lad from Scotland. They have since married and settled in beautiful Edinburgh. I would love to visit someday!

Having visited this city a number of times, almost all of your pictures brought back a flood of memories. Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities and their art museum is my favorite of all the cities. Thanks for a lovely post. genie
