River Leith Walk
We decided to explore our city a little today. We finally journeyed up Carlton Hill, opposite Arthur's Seat. It provided lovely panoramic views of the city and the Firth of Forth. Though it was bright and sunny when we woke up, it became very overcast for most of the rest of the day, so pictures wouldn't do the views justice. I did post more pictures on flickr, so be sure to check them out!
We then descended the hill and headed over to the River Leith Walk, which we stumbled upon one day when I was showing Josh where I work. It was a nice escape from the hussle and bussle of the city as the walk was mostly away from the busy roads. At about midpoint we found the Royal Botanic Gardens and lingered there for a while. It is a free attraction and we plan to visit again when the flowers are in bloom. It did provide a nice place to view some pretty fall colors.
