A Weekend in Edinburgh

Last weekend I had the chance to be in Scotland for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2012 (see also previous entry). Taking an early flight on Friday, there was half of Friday and all of Saturday to explore Edinburgh before the run on Sunday, and the weather was brilliant. Unlike usual Scottish summer (and spring, winter and autumn) there was no rain at all, and most of the time it was really sunny.

The majority of images of Edinburgh shown here were taken on or near the so called Royal Mile, which connects Edinburgh Castle with the Royal Palace of Holyrood House. With a private home right at the Royal Mile as our base, this part of the city with its plenty of medieval houses, Churches, bars and restaurants was very convenient to explore. I also made it twice to Arthur’s Seat, with its splendid views over the city and the sea.
