You can meet them at many places in the city - but I mostly met them in Princes Street, one of the few crowded streets as it was November. Attracted by the sound of their bagpipes, I couldn't resist stopping and listening, admiring the buskers' musical skills, as well as their kilts, sporrans and other elements of Scottish Highland dress. I know not everybody likes the sound of bagpipes, I simply love it. I haven't had a chance to visit Scotland since but, to my great joy, I once saw a Scottish piper in an Oxford street. Do leave your change to them, they certainly deserve it.

Edinburgh its braw man !
I have never seen so many wonderful specimens of manhood per capita than when I was in Edinburgh. Actually, Scotland in general is a good place to boy-watch. Especially if you're young, although the older men are gorgeous too!
Fondest memory: I saw quite a funny comic at the Fringe Festival who had the most original routine about sexual experimentation...good times.
Favorite thing: See men in kilts!! It's the best place to see a man in a kilt and believe me, you really do see them. In a pub on my 2nd evening there, there was a whole group of them! It doesn't really appeal to me, but then there's many girls who love it.
Yep we're in Scotland, no doubt about that : )
Are the really wearing nothing underneath ?
A bit cold in the winter I think ; )
Fondest memory: I loved waking up to the sound of bag pipes! It's such a haunting sound that suits this city so well.
