The Scot Monument at Princess Street provides a breathtaking view of the city. I am yet to go inside and climb but am sure it must be awesome.
The Forth Rail Bridge. You can see the Forth Road Bridge behind it.
From the Princess Street we took the bus that took us to the boat trip below the Forth Rail Bridge.
The Forth Rail Bridge was opened in 1890 is the one internationally recognised Scottish landmark. 98 workers lost their life during its construction.
It was a perfect day for sailing..see those small white boats?
There are many islands strwen over the firth of Forth. Our boat stopped at the Inchcolm Island.

The seals resting - you may even spot seaguls flying across. We didn't get to see them though.
