48 hours in Edinburgh
What I love of about this awesome city is that it's compact and much can be seen on foot.
Thankfully the chapel ruins provide slight relief from the winds coming off of Duddingston Loch.
It's hard to believe that at 48 degrees F, this ended up being the nicest part of the day.
With numb feet, the journey continued on to Calton Hill, after a quick photo of the famous Tolbooth Tavern.
Though hilly, the 1.6 mile walk to the top of Calton Hill is much easier than it looked from Holyrood Park.
If you're wondering if I walked the whole way in a sequin one-piece swimsuit...the answer is yes.
With the shift in weather and increase in tourist traffic, this will have be the last swimsuit photo of the day.
On the walk back down, we pass a canon that has been changing hands since before 1785-from Spain to Southeast Asia to Burma, before reaching Scotland.
The weather is officially too cold for this Vegas girl to strip down to a swimsuit again, so I'll wrap up this day with a shot of Edinburgh Castle.
Back down the Royal Mile to find dinner and a Scotch tasting before we head to our next destination.
All in all, it was a fun-filled, beautiful, delicious trip to Edinburgh...off to Belfast!
