Edinburgh and the mountains (or hills)

I just spent 2 days in the beautiful capital of Scotland, Edinburgh and I enjoyed every single minute of it. It was cold, since spring has decided to desert us and then again the United Kingdom is predominately cold.

I love the way Scotland promotes it’s heritage and encourages people to view the scenery and enjoy what Scotland has to offer. We went to three main places, mainly because they were close to us. If we had more time i’m sure we would have viewed more places.

Whilst we were driving there, we used the A68 which enabled us to see parts of Northumberland National Park. The scene there is beautiful. We stopped there to take some pictures.

Then the next day we went over to Edinburgh Castle. The way it’s been built, on a mountain, just made me think, wow it’s still standing there. It’s very very beautiful, the way nature can be integrated into architecture.

There were also some great views from the castle of the city.

We continued driving around and we got to Holyrood Park. This was my favourite place in the city. The hills were beautiful and right there in the middle of the city.

We went over to the Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre where you could see a ship which was docked and catch a glimpse of the sea.

On our way back, we decided to use the A1. We discovered, Dunbar which has access to the North sea and i thought it was one of the most breathtaking sandy beaches I had been to.

Overall I enjoyed the entire trip and I might be seeing Edinburgh again in the near future. 🙂
