Stopping by one of Edinburgh’s old cemeteries, “Old Calton Cemetery”, which was opened in 1718. We also went on top of “Calton Hill”.

The Royal Mile is the street which stretches from the Edinburgh Castle through the Old Town. Plain and simple. It’s a great place to explore, and despite it being a hot summer day, it even had a Christmas Shop!

We’ve just gotten back home from a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland (from Monday 4th June to Friday 8th June). We had a great time, there were lots to do and see so I will spread it over several blog posts.

First off, I’ll start with the hotel: “The Old Waverley Hotel”. With a history dating back to 1848, this 3-star hotel really had a lot of charm and was located in Princes Street (so, pretty close to everything). Our room had a great view to both the Edinburgh Castle and the Scott Monument right outside our window.
