This afternoon I went to Edinburgh and took the opportunity to take a few pictures in the centre area.

Here is a view of the Royal Mile looking down towards Holyrood.

Here is a little known memorial to the Protestant reformer, John Knox. This plaque is located in Mary King’s Close

Here is the memorial to Sir Walter Scott author of the Waverley Novels and much more. The monument is located in Princes Street. It is possible to climb up on the inside although I passed on that today because of the bad weather. This monument is in need of a good clean.

This afternoon I am presenting some images of the new Scottish Parliament, which opened in the autumn/fall of 2004.

The design is controversial.

Tours of the interior are available.

Worth a visit as part of an Edinburgh tour.
