My 5 favourite photos I’ve taken in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is my home city, and it also happens to be my favourite city (totally not biased). So I thought I would share some of my favourite photos I’ve taken around the city so you can see for yourself what a wonderful place it is. So, in no particular order here are my 5 favourite photos taken in Edinburgh.

1. St Mary’s Cathedral


I know I said this list wasn’t in any particular order but I’ve decided to start with my favourite photo. Probably not a great idea because it doesn’t show off much of Edinburgh, but it does show that we have nice churches. The choir were quite a talented bunch too.

2. Princes Street Gardens


I took this photo only a few weeks after I got my first camera (Nikon D3300) and I’m not sure how it turned out so good. I guess that shows you don’t need to know what you’re doing to take a decent picture. As you can see, it was taken on a rare day of Scottish sunshine.

3. The Meadows


This picture highlights the more scenic side of Edinburgh. The Meadows are close to my flat and a great area to chill out in the summer with Beer and a BBQ. Or a nice place for a cycle, as this mother and son are kindly demonstrating.

4. The Scott Monument 


The Scott Monument is one of Edinburgh’s most iconic tourist attractions. Located on Princes Street it towers over the surrounding buildings in spectacular fashion. Very photogenic.

5. The Bass Rock


OK, I’m cheating slightly with this one. The Bass Rock technically isn’t located in Edinburgh, but it’s only a short train ride away in the seaside town of North Berwick. Hosting the worlds largest Gannet population, the Bass Rock looks great, but smells terrible.

And that concludes my list. I hope you enjoyed it.
