Duddingston Loch, Edinburgh

Rambling around Duddingston Loch in Edinburgh last month. Lovely walk, old stone walls, Dr. Neil’s Garden, Duddingston Kirk, and some geese, swans, and pheasants.

At one point when we were unsure as to how to get to one of the places we wanted to see, a friendly woman noticed our apparent confusion, opened a gate, and led us there. Wonderful!

When I saw this chain on the church wall I joked that it was for sinners. Turns out I wasn’t off the mark. . .
