Other than the Edinburgh Castle, we also visited other attractions in Edinburgh.
The weather was fantastic and ideal for photo shooting. It was getting warmer, nearly as hot as Malaysia! This is the view of the city of Edinburgh taken somewhere near the National Gallery of Scotland.
This is the High Court of Justiciary located on the Royal Mile. The blue flag with a white cross is the flag of Scotland. Notice the three brass plates which resemble the letter “I” at the bottom of the photo? This is the site of the last public execution in Edinburgh which was held on 1864.
The Queen’s Gallery, located at the bottom of the Royal Mile, forms part of the Palace of Holyroodhouse complex. The Holyrood Palace is the official residence of the monarch of the United Kingdom in Scotland. It was once occupied by the famous Mary Queen of Scots.
Time for some refreshments. After the misfortune in Rabbie Burns café and bar, things moved on to the brighter side. As we passed by this shop selling hand made fudges which caught our attention, we knew we had to try it and went inside.
The fudge house was the home of the original Edinburgh fudge. It was established in the Royal Miles since 1949. The place was filled with tourists, so many of them, all of them speaking different languages.
The fudge costs £2.35 per 100g. Each bar weights approximately 50 to 70g. We tried 2 types of fudge, the chocolate walnut and the hazelnut fudge. We love anything with nuts, which is why we had two different types of fudge with nuts. Both fudges tasted very sweet, they were very smooth and creamy and it melted in our mouths. They were heavenly delicious and the nuts added crunchiness to it too.
We would recommend you to pay this place a visit. The fudge are really good and while writing this, I am already craving for more fudge! For more information, do visit their official website here.
