This will be my last vacation post – then it will be back to my Simple Florida Pleasures …
Anyway … while staying in Edinburgh, we took some day trips up into the highlands of Scotland!
I fell in love with the highlands, with the lochs, with the bens !!!
Can’t wait to go back !!!

More pics from my trip to Scotland featuring views of/from Calton Hill …
~~~ The hillsides are filled with bright yellow gorse! ~~~
From top to bottom … from Calton Hill to Greyfriars Kirkyard …
Who would have thought a cemetery would be so picturesque?
Edinburgh, Scotland :: Part 4 !
Museum hopping :: National Museum of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery !
~~~ Native deer of Scotland were HUGE! ~~~
From Far East culture to artists of Scotland, the museums were a wonderful way to spend a day!
~~~ Monet :: my mother’s favorite artist! ~~~
~~~ van Gogh :: one of my daughter’s favorite artists! ~~~
More pics of my Scotland vacation … featuring the Edinburgh Castle!
It’s like an adorable little village inside the walls!
St. Giles’ Cathedral … aka, the High Kirk of Edinburgh.
St. Giles’ is home to the Chapel of the Order of the Thistle …
(Scotland’s chivalric company of knights chosen by the Queen.)
The Chapel contains stalls for 16 Knights, the Sovereign’s stall and 2 Royal stalls (thrones.)
St. Giles’ is a must-see when visiting Edinburgh!
