Patt & Possum in Edinburgh

March of 2015 saw us in Scotland and spending a few days in Edinburgh before heading north to the Niel Gow Festival in Dunkeld and Birnam. It was a overcast most of the time we were there with drizzle and a stiff breeze, but still better than Chicago in March. Needless to say you need to layer-up, wear wool socks and good walking shoes as this is a walking town if there ever was one. Enjoy the pics below.
