While England was experiencing record high temps for Easter weekend,
Scotland was cold, rainy, and foggy for most of our stay.
But we had an amazing time despite the weather.
We stayed in Edinburgh and took a few day trips to surrounding towns.
We rented a flat at #1 Grassmarket.
I loved the big double green doors.
The view was pretty nice as well. See our green doors on the left?
But the fog cleared up and we enjoyed the sights of Edinburgh...
And the sounds...
It's really quite enchanting to hear.
We even caught the cherry blossoms at their peak.
A warm vacation must be needed!
We hopped on a train to St. Andrews for the day.
These are blurry pictures from the train, but you would see
bright yellow fields every once in a while.
And they are beautiful from the plane as well.
"It never used to be this way when they were even living here"
But anything for a few shots for the Royal Wedding coverage.
And of course our trip would not have been complete without a walk around the golf courses.
A highland cow, and calf.
While there, we also hiked up the William Wallace monument.
I actually feel like we did a like of hiking (up) while in Scotland.
We got some really good exercise...
We went to the Queen's Palace of Holyrood - which was lovely.
It was where Mary, Queen of Scots lived for quite some time.
No pictures allowed inside but here are some of the gardens and the ruins of the Cathedral.
Edinburgh is a lovely place. I highly recommend a visit.
But what a great trip!
