Photos of Edinburgh

This week I’ve been away from my usual haunts in London and leading a 10 day tour around Scotland.

Naturally the place to start of at is the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Like many other great cities, Edinburgh takes great pride in remembering those who made great impacts on the world or who contributed positively to local culture and if you like statues then this a city for you.

Not my favourite statue in particular but I think the Duke of Wellington would like the dramatic silhouette of his memorial.

Don’t forget to the this great post on William ‘I am the army’ Brydon.

If you’re visiting Edinburgh and fancy a walking tour of this beautiful city or a day trip to Stirling or an Outlander themed day then be sure to let us know!
