Scott Monument in Edinburgh

Scott Monument Edinburgh Sept 16 (1)

Friday 2nd September 2016

Our final day of our staycation and we visited Edinburgh. The Scottish capital is easy to get to from where we live. A train journey of less than 90 minutes from Newcastle. We arrived at Waverley Station and walked down Princess Street to catch a bus to the zoo. However, we stopped off for a few minutes at the gigantic Monument to Sir Walter Scott. I read somewhere this is the biggest monument anywhere to a writer. Very gothic and Victorian.
