Edinburgh, Scotland

 (JPG) Edinburgh, Scotland (405,962 bytes) ( 1,664 x 1,102 )
The city of Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and lies along the Firth of Forth. The area has been settled at least since the Bronze Age. By the 12th century Edinburgh was well established, centered around the castle rock. The city has maintained its medieval plan in the Old Town. In the 18th century the New Town was laid out to alleviate the problem of an increasingly crowded Old Town. It can be seen as a regular rectangular grid. The image was acquired April 29, 2006, covers an area of 16.5 x 25 km, and is located at 55.9 degrees north latitude, 3.2 degrees west longitude.
