The Magdalen Chapel in Edinburgh is the current headquarters of the Scottish Reformation Society, and was the site where the very first General Assembly of the Scottish Reformation chaired by John Knox is reported to have happened in December 1560. 
The bodies of the martyred Covenanters who had been executed in various parts of Edinburgh around 1680-1688 were also prepared here for internment upon the table where martyred Covenanter Captain John Paton's sword is now displayed. 
The stained glass windows are the only pre-Reformation glass that have survived intact to this day. The two images at the top depict the lion rampant of Scotland and the Queen Regent Mary of Guise's coat of arms. It is very significant that Mary of Guise's emblem is still intact as she was a Roman Catholic and the Presbyterian Reformers were particularly apoplectic about anything that reeked of "popery" and "papist elements". Also for the fact that Mary of Guise's daughter was Mary Queen of Scots and John Knox was so vehemently opposed to her coronation and openly called for her execution after the murder of her husband Lord Darnley. 
The two emblems below depict tributes to the husband and wife responsible for the construction of the chapel itself.

Well @woodland_creatures_leith we kind of think using the dog is cheating, but he's just too cute to not feature on our timeline 😍🙌⠀
⠀⠀
Thankful, there's some damn good looking cocktails in there too! 🍹⠀

Armchair Books, how I love you. With leather bound books stacked on shelves, tables, windows and each other, there’s so many stories to explore here.
....
When I visited a few weeks ago, there were so many special antiquarian books here including an illustrated first edition of Winnie the Pooh, beautiful covers of Jane Austen novels and each of the color faerie books (I regret not grabbing these while I was there). There’s also a hefty collection of other secondhand books to browse through. Really there is so much to see in this beautiful store.
....
With its rich literary history, Edinburgh boasts so many other beautiful bookshops as well. They all emanate that feeling of #booklove throughout its shelves. Some of my favorites include Edinburgh Books, Golden Hare Books, Transreal Fiction, and McNaughton’s.

Throwback to Edinburgh and a Maya who most definitely won’t smile in a photo if she suspects that it’s what we’d like her to do. Just as stubborn as her sister 🙄

Edinburgh. What a fantastic weekend. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Sophie and I now have a tradition to go away on a city break / shopping trip for her birthday each year. It was lovely to get some one to one time with her and we had an absolute ball. Each year she gets more grown up and we have so much fun together. 
I’m going to cover it all in a blog post soon so that I can share all of my recommendations.
