    Got to go to Edinburgh for a conference. Lucky enough to have two days either side of said conference for exploration and fun - what an amazingly beautiful city! Have to go back.

    Lizzies summer place. Was devastated I couldn't take photos on the tour, but fair enough seeing as it's a working palace.

    The Scott Monument - largest monument in the world dedicated to a writer. As someone famous once remarked, it looks as though someone cut the top off of a gothic church and plonked it straight on the ground. Climbing it was great fun!

    That bloody castle again. I loved that you could see it from pretty much anywhere in the city. Very imposing.

    Lovely set.. It looks like you had SOME blue sky, even if that was before the fog rolled in heh

    And it really ticked me off when in england that you can't take any internal photos.. but you then have to exit the castle/cathedral via the gift shop which has numerous crappy books..
