Random Scottish Photos

It’s time to wind up the Edinburgh portion of this trip, and what better way to do that than posting a bunch of pictures?  You guys like pictures, right?

Along the Royal Mile.  We spent a lot of time in this area.

Greyfriars Bobby

A statue commemorating a Skye Terrier who was so loyal to his master that he (supposedly) spent 14 years by his master’s graveside.  There are books and films made about Greyfriars Bobby.  I flicked through a children’s book that had been written about him and it was pretty cute (despite the graves and death and stuff).

The Forth Bridge and ... another bridge.

The Forth Bridge and … another bridge.

On our way to Stirling we stopped to look at the Forth Bridge.  There’s a restaurant across the street that makes references to the “Two Bridges”.  [I forget the name of the place, but it definitely had “Two Bridges” in the title.]

The wall of Stirling Castle.

There are “gold” bricks in the ground that you can stand on and be thankful that you’re not being executed.

Look at the foot!

A statue with really shiny toes.  The statue is David Hume (I do not know of him, but I want to read more about him now), and the toes are shiny because of students rubbing it for good look.

And yes, I touched the toe.  You never know when you’ll need some good luck – especially when you’re travelling across the UK.
