my trip to the capital of SCOTLAND

EDINBURGH!!

I have always wanted to visit this city, and finally i did it and no regrets!
We took a 4.5-hour train from London, and along the journey we also saw other beautiful cities, such as Durham, Newcastle, Berwick upon Tweed..
I had only 2.5 days in Edinburgh, so time was very limited and didn't manage to visit North Berwick as planned.
Anyway, the city is like a museum itself! Though many famous buildings, such as St.Giles' Cath and Rosslyn Chapel were undergoing conservation works back in March, and a large portion of Princes Street(the city's main thoroughfare) was closed for tramway work.. what an interesting timing!
yet the Old Town alone just amazed me! It is like walking into the past with all the surrounding Medieval architectures. Anyway, let the photos talk:

























































We also went to a loch feeding swans and sea birds.. it was so much fun!













And more animals pics from Edinburgh Zoo - world's first zoo to house penguins!











And finally a pano:




Hope you enjoyed these shots.

I can't post every photo here, but you are welcome to visit my gallery: www.ssfoto.net/edi.html

Superb shots, the cold look of the stone buildings is almost sexy lol. Edinburgh is fantastic and you can see that clearly in your pictures .

Thanks guys!
Edinburgh is indeed spectacular. I would recommend to wait till the tram network is fully working so that you can walk along the Princes Street with ease, but as i said earlier, the old town alone is amazing!
