As I mentioned in the last blog post, we went to Edinburgh for a short honeymoon last week. That we ended up in Edinburgh was probably mostly my fault/my merit since I didn’t feel like going to warmer latitudes in the middle of the summer, nor travel too far away. Edinburgh fit that bill very nicely, because there was a direct flight going there that wasn’t too expensive, and everyone I know who have visited Scotland have said that it is a very nice place.
And it is definitely really nice. We went there from Tuesday to Sunday (even if Sunday was just a day with travelling), and had time to see a small part of what there is to see in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas – the castle, with the Scottish crown jewels and history going back several thousand years, the Scottish parliament, which is interesting both architecturally and politically, the “Royal Mile”, which is the historic centre of Edinburgh, the old underground streets, that were preserved for the future when new buildings were erected on top, the floral clock in the nice park, the city in general with a mixture of old and new architecture and many nice view-points, and the “Highlands” when we took a very nice, but a bit strenuous, whole-day bus trip from Edinburgh up through the Highlands to Loch Ness and back.
I will post some pictures when we get time to sort them out a bit…
Scotland is definitely a place I would like to return to.
