First Day in Edinburgh

Our hotel, the Davenport House Hotel on Great King Street, has a very plush feel to it; bronze sculptures and ornately-framed oil paintings are everywhere and the whole hotel has a very 'period' style to it. This is the bed in our room.

After getting settled in the hotel, we hopped on one of the different Edinburgh Bus Tours and spent an hour or so being guided around the city's highlights.

You can't really go to Edinburgh as a tourist and not take a photograph of the castle, so here is one of the less familar views, taken from the Grassmarket.

And another of the familiar sights of Edinburgh's skyline; St. Giles Cathedral.
