Edinburgh, Scotland

I think this is an incredibly beautiful city.  I was there is mid-September when the roses were just past their peak.  August must be a glorious month.  There are green spaces and parks in central Edinburgh.  During my visit there were many painted, pre-fab, animal sculptures on display that were to be auctioned off as a fund raiser for endangered animals.

The historical centre of Edinburgh is its castle on top of a hill (a series of extinct volcanoes).  This is also where the famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is held every summer during the month of August.  The city cascades down from the hills to the Firth of Forth to the north.  There is no lack of stores, shops, pubs and restaurants of every description.  A lovely city to walk through on a pleasant sunny day.
