Our second destination in Scotland was Edinburgh which was a beautiful town with so much to see. This is a view above of the main thoroughfare in Edinburgh which connects The Holyrood Palace at one end to the Edinburgh Castle at the other.We stopped by the Highland Games in Burntisland and saw competitive events that have been going on since the 1600’s.
The only regret I have about my recent trip to Scotland is that I was not able to see more of this beautiful country. Our trip focused on Glasgow and Edinburgh but unfortunately we did not make it up to the Highlands this time. I read beforehand that Glasgow was an industrial town and it certainly had that feel. Gritty and urban along the streets which contrasted with the beautiful sandstone buildings extending up above the storefronts.
