Edinburgh Scotland in June

This was our first trip to Scotland in the month of June. Usually, we go in September when the tourist season is over, school and college classes resumed, and the weather is still very pleasant. This year, our two daughters planned a birthday trip (both have birthdays in the spring) so we packed our rain gear and hoped for the best. Never had to use our umbrellas once. Fantastic! My main objective this trip was a research field trip to St. Andrews to find more details on the siege of St. Andrews in 1546 and trace my ancestor’s involvement in that event. It was cold that day; wind blowing off the N. Sea. Brrr! Photos of this year’s Scotland adventure.
