Edinburgh Photographs

The following photographs were taken in and around Edinburgh including our trip out to the Forth Bridges and the Botanical Gardens.

The Queen at Holyrood

The QueenAfter completing a climb to the top of Arthur’s seat we went to see if we could spot the Queen. We had heard she was visiting Edinburgh as part of the celebrations to commemmorate the tenth anniversary of the reopening of the Scottish parliament. So we headed down to an area between the parliament and Holyrood palace where a large swarm of press were congregating. And sure enough, after about an hours wait Queen Elizabeth II and Duke of Edinburgh appeared to a very enthusistic crowd and the obligatory media scrum. Lisa was very pleased to have seen the Queen.
