Highland Fling

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland.
WP 2-3 are the highest points in Edinburgh itself. They are so close together you may as well fly between them as you head directly from WP 1 to WP 4.
From Crow Hill, the Scottish Parliament Building and the Royal residence, Holyrood Palace are at the base of the hill to the NW.
WP 6 is the highest hill in the area north of Firth Forth, and sets you up for a lazy left turn over Loch Leven at WP 7.
The Forth Bridge is the most prominent landmark in the area, 2 nm N of Edinburgh airport. There are actually three bridges at that location, Queensferry Crossing, Forth Road Bridge and Forth Bridge and as of January 2022, you can fly under all of them with no collision. If you are careful!
