Calton Hill, paintings, and College start

Last week - on the 15th - me, Georges, and Olivia, went out to enjoy a rare sunny day in Edinburgh. We started by visiting Calton Hill - a hill situated beyond the east end of Princes Street.

I didn’t take many pictures, but there are some monuments worth a visit. And if it is not too hazy, you’ll get a nice view to the city.

Scott Monument
A Victorian Gothic monument to Scottish author Sir Walter Scott.
It is the largest monument to a writer in the world.

On our way back, we took the time to stop by the Scottish National Gallery, which had some great paintings.

The Scottish National Gallery features some of Vincent van Gogh's and Claude Monet's paintings.

And that’s it! I haven’t been up to much lately. College lectures have already started, so…

Here’s a different farewell, from a little squirrel just outside the campus buildings.
