Edinburgh Winter Wonderland!

Ah the irony!!! We decided to go out for a wander as we couldn't take the car out again due to the snow! Didn't intend to but ended up in the centre of Edinburgh. We cut through St Andrews Square Gardens and saw this chap.
He was making snow bless him!!!! We have, interestingly enough, had about 6inches of snow today!



At the other side of the gardens is this lovely wooden Nativity Scene!



Walking down towards Princes Street we have The Scott Monument & the Big Wheel in Princes Street Gardens! In the Gardens there is a Scottish Market & at the foot of the Mound there is a German Market. It was quite quiet today but normally it's mobbed at the weekend!

This is the Ice Rink in the Gardens! They've had to clear the snow to allow people to skate! That's what the big mound is at the front of the pic! If you look closely you can see the little Penguins that the kids are using to help them keep upright!!! Soo Cute!!
 This final pic is of the Caterpillar ride at the kids funfair! They must have been frozen as it was cold enough for us just walking about!!!

  1. It all looks very Christmassy! Had to laugh at the snow-making robot, given the current climate his services really aren't required are they?!!!!!

  3. Think they have been on the main roads Claire, but all the side roads are compacted again!
