Having spent much of yesterday on a bus traveling from our last port to Glasgow, and then on to Edinburgh, we now spent this day riding around Edinburgh and vicinity on a bus.
I took some photos of Edinburgh streets as we drove around in the bus. You’ll find all the photos from this day in the gallery Edinburgh, feel free to look through it. Here is a street view, they all look pretty much like this. The land around Edinburgh is gorgeous (you’ll see some photos). The town is built very much like this – talk about dense housing, much of which was built in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is not friendly to the mobility impaired, but then, neither is most of old Europe.
I don’t know what this building is, but it has the lion and the unicorn on the front, in gold relief. Since this is the official Royal Crest of the United Kingdom, it must be a government something, but I was on the bus and never found out.
The trouble with photogaphy from a bus is that you can never get the whole thing, especially if the “thing” is Edinburgh Cathedral. Sorry about the bus seat.
