It was a blustery morning for our visit to Lauriston Castle earlier today. The castle, which is more a country house than an actual castle, is set in lovely grounds, with impressive statuary dotted around.
Kyoto Edinburgh Friendship garden, which is a lovely japanese style garden.
The old Doric column from the original gardens makes a nice focal point to the garden
which also has lovely views over the Firth of Forth and Cramond Island.
kestrel, which I added to this year's bird list!
