    Well we're here ;

    Scotland at last ! After a longer morning in bed, at about 8:30 we went down for the standard hotel / motel breakfast. Good enough and lots of it, ( as well as some items for lunch), so no complaints.

I'm living in the West end of the city; a different world from the one I grew up in here which was the working class ancient port city of Leith. However, Edinburgh is a small city and I can walk to Leith from Merchiston Crescent easily in an hour or so....walking back will ...
