It's been a couple of years since we were last in Edinburgh and we'd really missed the city. It's our favourite place in the UK. It was our first home together and for that reason it will always special. It was pretty awesome to be able to go back for a few days to visit and actually learn some things about the place we love.
We did all the touristy things - visit the castle, walk round the city on a tour, visit the vaults, walk round the botanical gardens. The weather even stayed dry for us!
Here are just a couple of the photos I took (there are lots and lots more lol). They were both taken whilst we were on the walking tour on Saturday.
I love Edinburgh's architecture. The detailing on the buildings and I love this Victoria Street in particular. The mix of colours against the beautiful buildings. How I would love to have a little store on a street like that! Just a shame about the building works going on lol.
This shot is one of the castle. We'd never been up to the castle before last weekend and we kind of shocked to see all the different buildings from the different periods. It's well worth the visit!
