Great pictures. Edinburgh looks beautiful in Summer.
Took them on Saturday. THought I'd whet the appetite of anyone coming up for the festival season.
I`ve never been to the festival although I've visited Edinburgh about three times.I'm working on a book part-set in Edinburgh at the time of the 1745-6 Jacobite Rebellion at the moment - not writing it I hasten to add.
That sounds like an interesting project. So many people (even in Scotland) think it was merely another Scots v The English barney.
Apparently no English regiment lists Culloden among its battle honours - presumably because of the atrocities that followed the battle. I actually knew very little about Bonnie Prince Charlie - but it is a very interesting story - and almost more a European war than an Anglo-Scots one. Some of the locations in the book don`t look to have changed much - Canongate Tollhouse, which was used for some of the Jacobite prisoners, for example.
