I’d love to be able to say that ‘due to public demand’ I’m posting more of the photos that were taken on our recent early morning Edinburgh walk, but that wouldn’t honestly be the case, although I did receive a number of comments about the previous post, which really made my day!
This second batch covers similar ground, but from different views, and again hopefully emphasises what a beautiful city Edinburgh is, starting with the photo above, taken in Princes Street Gardens, showing the colours of spring.
Sir Walter Scott, at the base of his Monument
Spring time trees in Princes Street Gardens
The Mound – Head Office of the Bank of Scotland, dominated by a golden statue of Victory
Looking back to Scott Monument from the Museum on The Mound – a museum about money!
The Old Town
Loving the trees… spot the castle in the distance!
Imagine the views from the top of this amazing structure!
Although I had quite a few of the Castle in the previous post, I couldn’t resist one more

A gift from American Scots to Scotland, commemorating those that fought in WW1

The last word goes to the Castle, looking over Wojtek’s Polish companion
