I've just returned from a wonderful trip to Scotland. I fell in love with everything about Edinburgh - the art, the architecture, the skies, the streets, and Scottish accents. I can't wait to go back again. See below for highlights from my trip!

Edinburgh Castle from Princes Street
Princes Street Gardens
Red and white houses on a hill
Lovely greyish-brown building with blue door
Angels with Bagpipes - a wonderful name for a restaurant!
Beautiful architecture. Love the curved ornamentation on the windows.
St. Giles Cathedral, the historic city church of Edinburgh and the mother church of Presbyterianism. Beautiful sculpture, vaulting, and stained glass. Especially loved the unique architectural details.
Stained glass window by Edward Burne-Jones
Hind from a statue outside St. Giles. According to legend, Giles was accidentally wounded by a huntsman in search of a hind. Loved the sight of the black hind against the blue-grey skies.
Lovely architectural detail
Buildings in the Old Town
Sign for deep fried Mars bars, a popular delicacy in Scotland!
