I find monuments always irritating, they celebrate victories, a sort of silly grandeur, a history that is always written by winners so uninteresting because it is always incomplete.
Most of the time the result is a terribly boring self complacent indulgence, in this case I have found history, harmony, charm.
Scotland is magic!
Scotland is beauty!
Scotland is mistery!
Scotland is history!
Scotland is personality!
Scotland is breathtaking landscapes!
I would say also a lot of rain, but I have to admit I have been lucky!
And Edinburgh is a fabulous compendium of all these characteristics!
