Edinburgh -

Capital on seven hills


When I visited this city for the first time, I did not like it at all.

The cause was perhaps that I was already dreaming about the Midlands and Highlands...

or it was just that grey, rainy day.

Scotland's Capital had no appeal for me.

Hower, in the years to follow I again and again returned to Edinburgh, that ancient city at the Firth of Forth.

First of all to pay visits to my old pal Neil and his family.

By and by I quite fell in love with the city.

There have been a few changes after all...

A few years ago the old black walls were sandblasted -  

and the city developed into rather a charmer...

There hardly is another city to walk up and down for hours and all the time finding interesting sights.

There is no end of sights to see - be it Edinburgh Castle,

or Princess Street with the neighbouring great 'garden' (beginning right behind St. Johns Church)
