Photoblog: Edinburgh

After our road trip around County Durham, we jumped back on the train and headed up to Scotland.

Our first destination was Edinburgh.

We dropped our bags off at the hotel, and then walked up to Edinburgh Castle. We walked around the back side, toured the castle (after standing in the longest line of the entire trip), and then walked back down the front side of the castle (through the touristy section of town).

It’s imposing, to say the least. Given the steep cliffs on three sides, I don’t really understand how it changed hands so often.

We stayed at the Rutland Hotel, a boutique hotel with amazing views of Edinburgh Castle. The last couple of nighttime shots of the castle are from our room.
