Two weeks in Edinburgh

For the last couple of weeks I have been up in Edinburgh visiting my supervisor at the British Geological Survey. Although I was pretty busy working, my friend who had lived there before recommended some pubs and places to visit around town, so was never out of things to do.

The following pictures are a bit of a random mix over the fortnight…one of the few times I managed to get out with the camera though was to Cramond, a village on the shores of the Firth of Forth. Unfortunately the tide was in so didn’t get to walk over to Cramond Island, but instead took a walk along the River Almond. The last picture by the way was taken on the drive home – my supervisor recommended taking an alternative route south on the A701 – much more scenic and cut a load of motorway driving off too. Also, many thanks to Kim for letting me crash at her amazing flat during the second week.

      More bad luck than poor geography skills. I didn’t fancy waiting around until sunset, nor getting there at stupid o’clock in the morning.
