City of Edinburgh

Following my earlier trip to Edinburgh Zoo, I decided to make the most of the glorious Bank Holiday sunshine by going for a stroll around the city.

I started by visiting the Royal Mile, where I took a few shots of the Scottish Parliament building and Holyrood Palace. I then walked back to Princes Street via Carlton Hill. At various stages during the day I hopped on and off the tram. I must say that I'm very impressed at how clean, efficient and affordable the new tram system is.

Later in the day I went to view the Forth Rail Bridge from the North Queensferry side of the Forth.

Here's some shots from the day:
