Day 4 : Edinburgh

The journey into Edinburgh was great but somehow I always get lost driving in but never have any trouble getting out......so after a scenic tour taking in park and rides, the maternity hospital and Craigmillar Castle we reached our destination....Morningside.....the area for 'The prime of Miss Jean Brodie'.
We were only in Edinburgh for a week....as well as catching up with family there was of course just too many places to see. My next few blogs won't have the days marked just our experiences.
Edinburgh was in the middle of it's Fringe Festival, so the Royal Mile was packed everyday with street performers.....


interesting locals...

and Characters.....

and an interesting procession from St Giles' Cathedral....



If you ever get the chance to go then it is worth it but it is difficult and expensive to stay anywhere...check out 'couch surfing' , 'garden camping' ....and local campsites . There are lots of park and rides so staying outside and travelling in isn't a problem. Its also worth remembering that the schools go back two weeks before the English schools so not only is the weather fine but its also easier to find places to stay......Oh and it's no use making friends with my sister...shes already booked up to the hilt!
