Despite having learned plenty of architecture speak throughout my schooling, the first word that comes to mind in describing Edinburgh is this: prickly. It's the same word I use to describe Prague, as I imagine both to resemble enormous decorative pincushions from sufficient altitude. Spires, battlements, towers, and turrets--and what ancient mountain range was leveled to provide so much stone? Certainly one of the most picturesque cities I've visited, as I'm sure you'll agree.
