Edinburgh’s Christmas has arrived!

This weekend saw the launch of Edinburgh’s Christmas season.  It is a magical time and there is much to enjoy.  I’ll be posting a few shots of the various treats available to us in coming posts.  For starters, here is a view of the Princes Street Gardens, where you can visit the European market and Santa Land.  As you can see, we had glorious weather on Saturday.

Of course, it all really comes into its own at night…

The black ‘blobs’ you can see at the foot of this last shot are the heads of people.  There were huge crowds taking in all the sights and sounds.  Very sensible – there is no better place to celebrate the season! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sandra! Looking forward to seeing your pics too. I have fond memories of a trip to Mousehole long ago to see the boats all lit up. 🙂 x


  1. What prettiness! I love Christmas lights but have to wait until the beginning of December for most of our festivities to start here. We’ve had gales and torrential rain 😦
