Edinburgh

Location: Edinburgh, UK

A couple of days in the beautiful but very chilly Edinburgh, apparently the second most visited city in the UK, we can see why.

Walking Tour - attempt #1. Yes Liz's looks a little miserable here infrom of the castle. Imagine how Michael felt with only shorts, t-shirts and thongs on!

The Edinburgh Castle, set atop a massive rock with sheer cliffs on all but one side.

St Giles Cathedral

Friendly Fire!! You'll notice a canon ball half way up the wall. Fire from the castle, it over-shot the enemy. Luckily it missed the windows, and was far enough away to only wedge into the wall and not destroy it.

The dirtiest patch of land in all of Scotland. Long story, but a strange tradition sees the locals spitting on this heart shaped brick work as they pass.

Along the picturesque Royal Mile that stretches from the castle to Holyrood Palace, the Queens Scottish residence

The impressive and rather large Wallace Scot Memorial

The oldest surving building in Edinburgh, other than the castle.

Inside St Giles

The beautiful park, that once was the cess-pit moat for the castle.

No, not the Oz Bar itself, but the interesting part is on the floor above, was the cafe where JK Rowling invented and then penned the first Harry Potter novel.

A pretty skyline capturing the silhouette of Scot's memorial as we departed
