Leisure trip to Edinburgh

As requested by Stefano, I wrote down this post with the aim to show some pictures which I took in Edinburgh and its surrounding areas. I was there last week, four days, and visited the main part of Lothian, a region of the Scottish Lowlands, lying close to the southern shore of the Firth of Forth river. Edinburgh, located in the Midlothian area, is a clean,  functional and businesslike town, and its people is really friendly.

Edinburgh's castle was the focal point of the old Edinburgh and has been the site of some sort of fortress since Roman times. It is Edinburgh's most famous attraction, which contains the Crown jewels, the stone of destiny and the ancient dungeons.

The weather was a little bit cloudy, but not too cold. I saw a stunning view from Edinburgh's castle, and after I had left the town, I realized it is one of the best town in Europe for environment and infrastructure  ...  and there are beautiful  places to run and walk close to the town.  Perfect!

We also visited some places through Edinburgh's surrounding areas, such as  Cramond village, Rosslyn Chapel, Newhaven and Leith.
I think I will go there once again.

Great pictures! I visited Edinburgh way back in the 1980's - much too long ago!

Bella la foto del mitico Bobby. Ci hanno fatto anche un film molto bello e commovente.

Beautiful pics. Never been there, but would consider next time in Europe.
