... the outskirts of Birmingham, which beats driving along boring motorways. Takes longer, but we get to see some of the little towns and villages we would have missed otherwise.
Towards the end of the day, having had enough of being on the road, we decide to settle the night at a camp which happens to be at the back of a pub at Buxton in the Peak District. Our drive through to here was just lovely with all the stone houses, walls and fences. Paddocks ...
... walk up it, you will be accosted with literally thousands of pamphlets and fliers for every act or event going on at the festival. You can hardly move and that doesn't make for a gentle Graeme, as one after another "Do you want a pamphlet" offer is made..."Look mate you know what you can do with that piece of paper" response is made. Of course I do it with a smile...NOT! At first it all seems so innocent but after the millionth time ...
... out how to get tickets, we flicked through the brochure to find a screening that we would like to see that was on the next day, and booked one called "Shorts from Sweden: The Hidden Reverse". Then we headed back to the Royal Mile to try to find a ghost tour for that night. We saw a few booths, so we went to talk to one of the guys there who convinced us that his tour was great, and we'd even get a free shot at the end of it. So we booked our tickets for that before saying ...

O tempo não ajudou, primeiro dia com chuva a potes, segundo com nevoeiro e "chuva molha parvos", mas isso não me impediu de visitar a Calton Hill, Galeria Nacional, Jardim Botânico Real (encontrei-o totalmente ao acaso e foi a primeira vez que visitei um sítio deste tipo), Museu Nacional, e dar passeios bem grandes pelas partes nova e velha da cidade.
... whiskey. I added a lot of water to it, and it was still bad. I have discovered that I am definitively not a fan of whiskey. I'll stick with my cidres and wine!
That was most of what we accomplished the first day. I may have to add a second blog post for the final day we were in Edinburgh! I forgot quite how much we did that first day in Scotland! I'll finish it later so you will just have to be contented with this quite long account of my first day in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Monde Edinburgh
My husband and I stayed at Le Monde for our 1st wedding anniversary on 15th October. As it was a quiet sunday night we were ugraded from the world class room we had booked to the Tokyo suite and were very impressed! The room was huge with lots of attention paid to detail. There was a flat screen tv in the seating area and one above the bed, accompanied by dvd's such as memoirs of a geisha and lost in translation. The huge sunken bath was great to relax in after a days shopping and another tv was situated in the bathroom. The Tassimo coffee machine is also a nice touch.
I booked this hotel for my husband's 40th birthday weekend and it was one of the bext weekends away we've had. The hotel is situated in the smart George Street area of the city with all the shops and attractions within a short walk or bus ride away.
my husband and i stayed here on thursday 14th september - it was a surprise for our 1st wedding anniversary from some of our family. we stayed in the atlantis suite and I have to say that it was absoultely fantastic!! The room was out of this world and even all the little touches were great aswell, even the tiles in the bathroom are heated!! the bed was huge and very comfortable. the bath was also huge!! the decoration was outstanding especially the fish tank between the bedroom and bathroom!! we had a meal at night in the paris restaurant and it was excellent. we also had a few drinks at the other bars and it was a great atmosphere. when we had returned to our room the bed had been remade and the room sorted which was nice. breakfast was also great in the morning. Overall the staff were very friendly and helpful not how i would have imagined them to be at such an upmarket hotel. the hotel was fantastic and i am hoping to return for my next wedding anniversary!!
Stayed in Le Monde for one night in early August. Got a cheap last minute deal (only £125 b&b). The hotel reception staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was themed on Beijing with a big dragon mural on one wall, was great (not huge) but was very nicely furnished with an extremely comfy bed and the most fantastic bathroom. Nice touches included complimentary magazines, bottled water, mood lighting, dvd libraby on offer and the rubber duck in the bath. Were not disturbed at all by the club or restaurant, the room location was very quiet. The breakfast was an event in itself, wide enough selection of food available and all freshly cooked, the waitress was also fantastic with her service. Overall a great night, and would definitely stay again.
Tolles Hotel in Edinburgh
Wir haben im Rahmen eines Fotoshootings in Edinburgh im Le Monde Hotel gewohnt und wir waren begeistert von den Zimmern und den sehr hilfsbereiten und netten Hotel-Personal.
Jedes einzelne Zimmer ist sehr liebevoll und stylisch eingerichtet und es macht wirklich Spaß sich in den Zimmern aufzuhalten.
Das Essen im Restaurant war super und wir haben unsere Abende in den Bars und dem Hoteleignen Club sehr genossen.
Ich kann das Hotel nur sehr empfehlen!
Me and my husband stayed in Le Monde for our 1 year anniversary and couldn't have asked for anything more. On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly and helpful reception staff and were shown up to the romantic Cairo suite where there was a bottle of champgne and a box of chocolates waiting for us with a card from the Le Monde staff wishing us a happy anniversary and a very pleasant stay.
We booked a table for dinner in the Paris bar and the food and drinks were excellent.
After dinner we found our room set for the evening with the curtains closed, mood lighting and music set and rose petals scattered on bed. It was lovely.
Stunning hotel, great location, would highly reccomend!
Great stay in Edinburgh
Had a fantastic stay at the Le Monde Hotel on George Street. This hotel had been recommended to us and it certainly did not disappoint. Our room was fantastic (themed on the city of Atlantis) with an amazing fishtank above the bed and luxury bathroom.
We loved being able to pop down to the cool bars in Le Monde - great weekend atmosphere! The location was a huge plus as we were within walking distance to many sightseeing attractions and Princes Street and Harvey Nichols were just around the corner.
A very enjoybale stay at a fantastic new hotel! Would highly recommend.
Would cost less to fly to NYC for the night.
We were handed our room key, Guess what it had not even been cleaned!
Also lot of noise till the bar closed
Top it off with the chef not turning up for breakfast.
Expensive and over rated
Amazing decor - but why is there the need for TV screens all over the place. The prices are extremely high - maybe the sort of place to go for one drink, then move on somewhere cheaper.
