What could be a beautiful place is let down by a number of small things that are missing or never thought of. This apartment is very modern and a number of the fixtures are expensive but :-
- Shower drain was blocked, the trap had never been cleaned since new. We could have been flooded out.
- No soap dish in the shower
- Stacks of stuff missing from the kitchen.
- no elevator from underground car park,
- large parts of the complex still a construction site.
I gather this place has been open for 12mnths but the building has never been finished.
Modern appointments - fridge, dishwasher, washer
LCD TV & DVD player - with 40+ channels

... of a scientist named Hutton from Edinburgh who first discovered through his observations in the 18th century that the world was much older than the Church said it was (they claimed it was about 6000 years old) and also learned important things about how the earth was formed. The entire place was very cool- you get in a "time machine" that summarizes the Earth's formation from the Big Bang and on, a volcano room where the ground shakes, a cold glacier room, a ...
... breathe in too deeply when smelling whiskey. Potent. It was nice though, I sat there and made 30ml of liquid last 90 minutes while I was listening to some music being played next to me. It was so relaxing! I had a drink bought for me then, which was nice. Overall it was a very whiskey based day, and the people I met made the whole day. I'd even go as far as saying I'd like to see a few of them again in their home countries...or tomorrow. Tomorrow would be nice. Lisa ...
... a string of mismatched buildings but the view was the best that money could buy! You could see Edinburgh below all lit up and then there was some firework shows off in the distance for unknown reasons. The tour was worthwhile and I left learning more about the lake of poo in Edinburgh, the lengths people would go to for some money, and just how evil rulers could be back in those times. Makes you wonder if you’d rather have our slick, sweet talking politicians who ...
... the UK in 1998. Unlike in America where the hand basin has a hot and cold water faucet but a single spigot, many places have sinks (and these are not old ones) where there is a faucet and spigot for hot and a faucet and spigot for cold. When I wash my hands I normally select hot which gives me a few seconds of warm water before it becomes really, really hot. No one has the time to mix hot and cold water in the basin. It is a wonder that this plumbing tradition still ...
... Checked, only a warden can issue fines for throwing lit cigarette buts from cars in Scotland. They need to consider the Aussie E.P.A. dob in a litter bug scheme, they will need the revenue stream if they win independence. Not up to sanding and painting this afternoon :( Resting and drinking 'international' hot toddies, made with Grants Scotch Whisky, Italian honey and spanish lemons. I'm not a good patient and have been abandoned, even the squirrels have stayed ...
