Grand Tour of Scotland: Day 2 – Exploring Edinburgh Part 13

Good day everybody. Hope you are all well and are staying safe. Let’s continue our walk…

We crossed the street and walked towards Waverley Station. I turned around just for a quick photo of Cockburn Street. Turning back I captured Scott Monument from a far… The road was very busy and my arms and back were beginning to ache. Carrying your camera in your hand the whole day is starting taking it’s toll….

Still walking towards Princess Street I kept taking photo’s of the buildings far away…. Scott Monument really stood out for me…

It does not matter from what side you capture this monument the craftsmanship and detail are extraordinary. I am looking forward to our next visit…. We reached Princess Street not that far from our Guesthouse now….

Grand Tour of Scotland: Day 2 – Exploring Edinburgh Part 12

Good day to all my followers and internet friends. I hope that you are all well and staying safe…. Well let’s continue our walk back to our guesthouse…

Dad and I got thirsty and was looking for a place to sit and relax for a few minutes. All the places on the Royal mile was packed and we came across Kirks a very cozy bar/restaurant next to the stairs of the The News steps. We each had a glass of Coke and a well deserved rest.

The views outside was spectacular. You can see Carlton Hill from here.

We then tackled the The News Steps. It took dad a while till he reached the bottom. He joked about it and said he took it step by step…

We then reached Cockburn Street. I have seen so many photo’s on Instagram of this street that I put it on my list of places of interest…. Looking forward to exploring it some more on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Some of the views of Carton Hill and Beautiful buildings before crossing the street…. The Edinburgh Dungeon is also on our places of interest list for our 2021 Tour of Scotland.

That is all for now. Thank you very much for taking the time to join us and wander the streets of Edinburgh…

Have a wonderful day and please keep safe.
