We never saw Edinburgh when it was truly light……we arrived after dark Friday evening, spent the entire Saturday on a countryside tour which departed before the sun was fully up, and departed for the airport at 8:00 Sunday morning.
But, still, we enjoyed seeing this beautifully historic city. We found it vibrant, active and loved the architecture. Below are a few images:

The city perched on the volcanic cliffs. Edinburgh castle is in the distance…

We had the castle to ourselves. Gabe watching the sunrise before we went to the airport
