Description

I had to go up to Edinburgh to take some shots of the Scotland v. South Africa rugby match so decided to spend an extra couple of days taking shots of the city. Unfortunately the weather was poor and I had bronchitis so I didn't manage to do what I had hoped.

However, this shot at least gives you some idea of the amazing view from the castle. You can see many historical and geographical landmarks in this image (see inset www.gigapan.org/gigapans/65565/snapshots/180627/). There is a wider-angle shot here: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/65674/ and you can see the view to the south here: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/65651/
I must mention that the castle itself was something of a find. It is wonderfully maintained and the staff were knowledgeable and really helpful. For more about the castle see www.edinburghcastle.gov.uk Will open in a new tab or window/
Many thanks to the folks at Historic Scotland (www.historic-scotland.gov.uk Will open in a new tab or window/) who gave me permission to take this shot.

    If you visit Edinburgh, the perfect way to seal the deal would be to visit the Edinburgh Castle. Wander up to the higher parts of the castle, and you will be left astounded by the spectacular views. I know for a fact that this is one structure that never ceases to amaze me. The Scottish have aptly named it as the ‘Castle of Castles. www.historicaltravelguide.com/edin burgh-castle-scotland.html Will open in

    Yes - well kind of. It was a commerical thing and the images are not hosted by gigapan.org. In fact you need a Facebook account to see the shots - but if you have one then this link apps.facebook.com/fanfinder < img src='/images/external_link.png' alt='Will open in a new tab or window' />/ should work for you. NB I didn't take all the images.

    You mentioned taking photos of an international rugby match. Was it a gigapan? Can we see it?

    Thanks for that David. I have to confess that this was a purely opportunistic shot. I knew I would be in Edinburgh and knew that there would be things to see so taking a gigapan sounded like a good idea. But I didn't really have the time to do any research and whilst I was stood up there waiting for the rain to clear for long enough to take a shot, it occurred tome how much there was to see in this scene and how I knew nothing about any of it. Your comments make me feel good :-)

    A week ago, I finished reading, *Majestie, The King Behind the King James Bible,* (King James VI of Scotland is the same dude as King James I of England), written by David Teems (tinyurl.com/Majestie001 Will open in

This Gigapan of Kilgore's adds a great amount of excitement ... there is *SO* much to see in Edinburgh and this panorama captures at least 2-weeks worth of what there is to visit. Excellent GigaPan.
