The trip to Scotland, part 1.

This trip to Scotland was the third time for me, but I never get bored with it. I have also visited once in London, last year.
There's so much to see in Scotland, but never enough time :)
My flight went from Helsinki via Amsterdam to Edinburgh. Fortunately, change of the airplane did not take long.
I packed lightly, so I could bring a lot of stuff back :D
I took with me only sea-themed clothes, so they are easy to mix and match.
My travel outfit:

The flight was on time. ( Flight took off at seven in the morning, so I had to be at the airport at five-.- ')

The first hour in Edinburgh, and here I am: shopping! :D

I bought a pair of women's "kilt". They were made of wool and made in Scotland. I found also nice kilt pin with familyname "MacLaine", its funny because my last name actually is Laine ^^

I went to see The Elepahnt House cafe. It is famous for the fact that J.K. Rowling started writing the Harry Potter books there.

The next day I went sightseeing. The weather was not good, but it did not matter. I was staying at Stirling, so I used rentable bicycle to travel short distances. On this picture I'm heading to train station.

So, these are the Kelpies^^
The Kelpies are 30-metre high horse-head sculptures. These "horses" were designed by Scottish sculptor Andy Scott. Pretty cool!
