IMG_5369

One of the things I really love about Edinburgh, Scotland – is the really cool old-timey cemeteries. In Leith, I came across an old maritime cemetery. Many of the surviving gravestones reflect Leith’s maritime history. According to the plaque at the gate, the grandparents of 19th century Prime Minister W.E. Gladstone are buried here.

Let’s take a photo journey through the graveyard and check out some of the crazy artwork of these old-timey headstones.
