... Charlie tasted another half a dozen whiskies and bought a bottle of Benromach single malt. After the shows we found a great Thai and Indian restaurant and had one of the best curry meals we can remember. The place was full of Indians,which we took to be a good sign!
We met up with the Kidds again waiting for the bus back over the bridge, and finally got back to the motorhomes around 11pm. What a great ...

... location were very impressive, it towered over you at every angle from it’s position on top of the Castle Rock. The castle grounds were less impressive, it had been modernised way too much, leaving little trace of it’s natural history behind. There were war and memorial museums all through the castle, which were interesting for the first hour or so, then they got a bit old. The giant cannon blasting off at 1pm scared the living ...

Close shave in Edinburgh

... the building so we could recall that it had been an orphanage, which was the reason for the high banisters on the stairs and the round windows which allowed the staff to watch the children in the common areas. It is a lovely building (we have the advantage of not living there). There was an excellent exhibition of J D Fergusson which we all enjoyed. We then headed to part one of the gallery - outside there was a lovely art work - the soil ...

... walking tour, so the next day we met our guide in reception, and he walked us into the city to start the tour. Our guide took us around the Old Town, pointing out landmarks and telling us stories. She showed us where JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter and some graves in the cemetery where she got ideas for character names (McGonagall, Tom Riddle etc!), told us stories about medieval Edinburgh, and ended the tour out the front of the castle. Anthea and I got some lunch, and ...

... flew by with drinking and dancing on the streets with 80,000 new friends under the Edinburgh Castle bursting with psychedelic fireworks going ballistic, bagpipes, Scottish jigs or in our case, hopping up and down on each leg and strangely enough...Fosters. To start the new year off with more bangs, we hiked the hills to Arthur's Seat - totally unimpressive seat but good challenge to delicate bodies on the first day of 2013.

    Abbots House in near the wharf area in Leith, a suburb about 3km south of Edinburgh. It is an old guesthouse that has seen better days. Our room has an ensuite (as long as you don't want to get 2 people in it). There is a skylight that doesn't have a cover. When I reported this I was told that they knew about the problem and would fix it tomorrow (which they didn't). I am not sure why they didn't fix it before we got here.

    The breakfast was OK but not as good as those at the other places we have stayed at in the UK.

    Abbots rated as 3 star on Bookings.com. I am surprised that they got such a high rating.
