Grand Tour of Scotland: Day 2 – Exploring Edinburgh Part 2/20

Next on our Itinerary was the famous Circus Lane but first we stopped for a little break and there we discovered St Vincent’s Chapel and St Stephen’s in Stockbridge. Along the way I captured some beautiful Lilies and of course some more buildings and streets or Lanes.

St Vincent’s Chapel is such a beautiful building and I just love the red doors. When I visit Edinburgh again I am definitively going to stay longer than one day. Due to our tight schedule and sooo many places to see we could not go into all the chapels and museums we wanted to. I am already planning our next trip and this time we are taking our time to explore properly.

St Stephen’s Church is no longer used for Sunday services, currently it is used for community events, a daycare, performances, and private and commercial events. The best of all I had St Stephen’s Church on my list but when I could not find it I did not tick it off. Only while doing my research on the places I photographed I was shockingly surprised that I did see it. One of our hosts on holiday told us that many churches and chapels have been sold and some even used as pubs… On our journey we did see that a lot. It is sad if you think about it but on the other hand at least the buildings are getting used and some even restored. They are given a new lease on life…

When I did my planning for our trip I went on Instagram and search anything to do with Edinburgh and the other towns we were going to visit. Circus Lane was the one place I just had to go and see for myself and I was not disappointed. It is magical. All the detail and oh my word all the flowers I just could not stop clicking away….

Thank you for taking the time to walk through the streets of Edinburgh with us. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Our next stop Water of Leith Walkway…
