It has been more than twenty years since my last stay in Edinburgh. A couple of years ago, I spent an afternoon there while on a bus trip but that was really just a walk up and down Princes Street and then time to go.
On my previous visits, when I stayed in the city, I had travelled by car. This time I flew. Easyjet from Belfast – I hadn’t realised it takes only about 25 minutes.
In Edinburgh there’s a tram service every seven minutes from the airport to the city centre. It takes about half an hour. Convenient and stress free.
I enjoy walking around any city I visit, immersing myself in the atmosphere, gaining a sense of the place and of course taking photographs. In Edinburgh The Old Town, with its cobbled streets and narrow alleys project a sense of history and charm, while the shops, cafes and bars in and around Princes Street in the New Town offer a more modern vibe.
I shot a lot more clips than photographs but here are some pics.
