The Dalkeith House is beautiful with a great location near Edinburgh, my only complaint is that my room is freezing. Other than that, so far so good :).

... Davey Connor is a relatively new Scottish comedian with good reviews, and we all found his show very funny. He had an older "heckler" in the front row and he dealt with him really well, which was pretty funny. After the show Kev and Erin headed home but I stayed out with Caitlin and Gabi for a catch up.
