EDINBURGH [1] Scottish Capital Under the Clouds

I made a stop in Edinburgh for a day trip from Glasgow. I found a very cheap bus fare on Megabus for only a pound each way + 50p booking fee. The buses were very nice. Riding a double decker down the highway for the hour-long trip was certainly quite interesting!

Although the weather wasn't too good, it gave the city a very different tone - one which I think is quite appropriate in fact when I look at how these photos turn out.

IMO Clouds add a special charm to the city,during my time in Edi I liked when there was that soft rain falling. After London, this is absolutely my favourite city in Britain.

What´s your problem? Every city has it own weak sides and by looking at these photos (which are very nice) it seems the city lacks greenery.

it was only a comment you nobbers

you should learn to take both positive AND negative comments about cities with a pinch of salt, it is only somebodies opinion and there is no need to get flustered!

sometimes i wonder if it is a bunch of 10 year olds on this forum, i really do!

hkskyline: again, great pics

Oh, comon! Ask someone in the UK section if they find me negative, i´m sure they don´t. You know that yourself but you´re obviously experiencing a period of aggression in your life or something. You sound like i´ve said something much more serious, get a grip and chill out!

Edinburgh is an outstanding city.
The Old Town and New Town districts of Edinburgh were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
