Just back from a 5 day trip to Scotland. Here's some of the highlights -
Day 1(1st March 2006):
Reached late in the afternoon, so got time only to see one of the most important tourist sights of Edinburgh - 'The Royal Mile'.This road leading from the Edinburgh Castle down to the Holyrood Palace (the Queen's official residence here) is part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and as you would expect is every bit cliche touristy.
Day 2(2nd March 2006):
Went back up to the Castle and walked around most of the Old town to see more touristy stuff.
A large part of the town has been taken over by some sort of Touristy activity or Museumification.
However unreal, I loved that lost in time feeling.
Above is a project by the famous town planner Patrick Geddes.
