Outside Glasgow train st. Off to Edinburgh for a day trip..

The Royal Mile, Edinburgh..

Arches along The Royal Mile..

Side streets.. Royal Mile..

Bagpipes and Kilts.. classic Scottish stereotype..

From headless people to owl handlers, sword wielders to fire jugglers, there were a wide range of street entertainers along The Mile..

Georgeous old church building along The Mile, Edinburgh..

Edinburgh Castle..

Castle and views over the city with North Sea (I think) in the background..

Old school draw bridge. Used to be raised in ancient times to prevent enemies entering the castle..

View leaving the castle..

Where J.K Rowling wrote the Harry Potter books over coffee and cake..

Not the same cafe but still worth the pic.. fuelling that caffeine addiction..

Lol. Funny signs outside a shop..
