Even though I was only in Edinburgh for a day, I took hundreds of photos as I explored the city (trying not to bump into anyone or trip over anything as my eyes were fixated on the beautiful buildings surrounding me) and figured a photo essay would be the best way to share the rest of my time in the city with you! After the high-up city views of Edinburgh after our hike up Holyrood Park, scouring the streets for the best – and cheapest – place to fill our bellies, and checking out the “other side” of the city, here are the rest of my photos.
Only have a day to play tourist in Edinburgh? One thing you should definitely have on your to-do list is a quick climb up Holyrood Park to experience a panoramic view of this incredibly beautiful city. The park is easily accessible as it’s located right in the middle of the city, just a short walk from The Royal Mile, and it won’t take up much of your day if you’re on a tight schedule. Holyrood Park Edinburgh is a royal park and is home to the tallest point in the city; Arthur’s Seat at 251 meters.
