Scotland, the place where men are manly enough to wear skirts and the bagpipes are constantly playing in the distance.
While studying abroad in Dublin, Ireland, I had the opportunity to take a weekend trip to Edinburgh! Click here to read more about my study abroad experience. I was also lucky enough to celebrate my 18th birthday during my weekend in Scotland! Below are some pictures that summarize my experience in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Our view of Edinburgh Castle outside of the Castle Rock Hostel.
A friendly Scottish gift shop owner.
My coffee order at a Starbuck’s in Edinburgh’s city center.
Apparently there aren’t a lot of Whitney’s in Scotland…?
Waiting to start our walking tour of Edinburgh!
Kilts all day, every day, no matter what the occasion!
You thought I was joking?
Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to Scotland without watching a wonderful performance with bagpipes.
Scaled the side of a mountain to reach the top of Arthur’s Seat…
…carrying two shopping bags! (and wearing a turtleneck sweater)
Time to go try out Edinburgh’s night life and celebrate turning 18! Hive, anybody?
Taking one last selfie before leaving back to Dublin! Edinburgh was definitely one for the books.
