Travel Adventures | Edinburgh, Scotland

August 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

After our adventures in the highlands, Brian and I spent two (split) days in Edinburgh. Despite being the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, doesn't have the chaotic big city feel that you would would expect. We really enjoyed exploring the city, walking among historic buildings, and of course touring Edinburgh Castle.

Looking out toward the city from inside the castle. That strange tower on the right is a monument to Sir Walter Scott.

Dalmahoy - Where we stayed on our second night and I pretended we were in a Jane Austen novel.
