Edinburgh Mon Amour

Our plans to go tenting on Saturday were spoilt by a forecast for torrential rain. So we went to Edinburgh instead. No matter how the weather is supposed to be, Edinburgh never disappoints. Edinburgh is where I fell in love with Scotland. We went to my two favourite places – places I’ll never tire to visit – The National Museum and The National Gallery. In addition, we went to Burntsfield in between to check out Falko, a German Konditorei. Although we were highly disappointed by the lack of crust on the bread and utterly shocked by the prices, it was still worth a visit (I mean I got Löwensenf there which is produced in my hometown, so it was definitely worth it). Here are some of the pictures I took:

Edinburgh – always pretty, even on a rainy day and yes I love cemeteries.

The National Museum – where everyone turns into a child at awe and yes I am a sucker for grandfather clocks.

 

The National Gallery: I could live in this place. They have so many beautiful women in there, my favourite is Lady Agnew by Singer Sargent. Unfortunately, the downstairs rooms are closed at the moment.

      Yes it was nice. It is such a lovely place. The women in the gallery are soooo beautiful. There used to be another one which unfortunately was a loan and isn’t there anymore. I am so busy doing trips with my friend that I hardly find the time to blog about them. I still need to upload the Kailzie Garden pics and the one from our trip to the Highlands. Today is Floors Castle, a William Adams building. Cheers Debby
