The "Royal Mile" of Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle is built atop volcanic Castle Rock.

The Royal Palace in Crown Square is home to the Crown Jewels.

The North Window portrays nautical themes: Christ walking on the water in the lower section and, in the upper section, Christ stilling the tempest

Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park, a wild piece of highland landscape in the centre of the city of Edinburgh at one end of the Royal Mile. It's a fun hike with wonderful views of the city all along the way.

Gotta love the towering cliffs and panoramic views of the city from the trail.

The modern architecture of the Scottish Parliament provides a nice contrast to surrounding historic structures.

View from the trail on Arthur's Seat.
