Pix of Edinburgh and Environs

I thought it was finally time I posted some of my pix from the trip to Scotland last year. So over the next while I'll be putting some up here. Some of the ones that worked out well and some of the oddities.

This is Adam Smith's gravestone in Grey Friar's churchyard.

Just in case anyone ever needs to prove that he's really dead.

The cemetery at Greyfriar's is really quite beautiful.

Of course its very old and parts of are constantly in need of propping back up again.

There's some lovely old stonecarving around too. Much of it masonic which should come as no surprise.

No visit to Greyfriar's is complete without a nod of the head to Greyfriar's Bobby, the Skye terrier, who stayed by his master's grave for 14 years.

Just outside the churchyard is his statue.

With the ever present pizza joint adjacent.

Haggis pizza anyone?
