Scotland 2016: Day 12 – 14, Edinburgh

Day 12 – 14: 12 -14 July, Edinburgh
After my wonderful trip through the Highlands, I’ve spent two more days in lovely Edinburgh. Without any set plans, really, as I’ve been to this city a few times by now and have visited all the “must-see” sights. It’s always busy in the summer with the Edinburgh Tattoo and the Fringe festival on the horizon. I

On the first afternoon I found myself trekking up Arthur’s Seat once more, which for a few moments while I was doing it, considered a stupid idea ;-). But of course it is always worth it. I came back down on the west side this time and used the opportunity to walk along (or rather below) Salisbury Crags for the first time as well.

This time I also went to stroll around Dean Village and along the Leith for a while. Unfortunately the river foot path was blocked for some parts due to construction work.

And then there always are the Prince Streets Garden to just hang around in on a lovely summer day.

Next time I’ll be back in Edinburgh in the winter and it’s going to be interesting to see how different the city looks during that season…
