We last visited the Christmas lights in the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh in 2017. This year I booked it again and we met up with a friend to visit it. The Christmas Light Trail runs from mid-November to the 30th of December. Entry is timed so we set out for 6pm last Monday. Weekdays are quieter than the weekends. The trail starts by passing through the West Gate building and continues through various different sections with static displays like this green tree.
and others with changing colours in time to the music
and video on one of the buildings. We walked through a tunnel of lights.
and continued on the trail. The Chinese Garden had lights hanging from the trees
Another area had light bulbs hanging from the trees.
One section had 2 metre UV feathers. which looked as if they were floating in the trees.
Santa was standing near the catering section.
There was a large variety of displays including some on water. This one on a tree looked almost abstract as the tree faded behind the lights.
The trail eventually wends its way back to the West Gate buildings and it was time for us to head home for an evening meal.
