The Honeymoon: Day 9, Edinburgh

May 26th, 2011

We left the Glasgow Novotel bright and early after another excellent breakfast, and drove to Edinburgh.

We were immediately impressed with the massive Edinburgh Castle that sits on top of a vast pyroclastic extrusion in the middle of the city, which is otherwise fairly level. The castle broods over the city like a particularly militant hen, looking angrily over her clutch of peasant-eggs.

We drove around, just looking at Edinburgh's stunning architecture for a while.

Eventually, we dropped off our car in a parking lot, and walked nearly all the way around the castle.
