Walking in Lauriston pl, at night, in search of a place with live music, (I found it!), we passed by a well illuminated building that we couldn't identify. Only back home I discovered that it is Heriots school, using a palace that a century ago was a hospital. Very nice... indeed!
Lovely pub in Newhaven Trinity that has fantastic views across the Fourth to Fife. they do food as well, but you can't see the views from the dining area, but it's nice to eat here too.
Quite rustic, old world style pub, very friendly and a good pint as well!

InchKeith is seen in this picture it's the biggest island on the river.

The ferry to Europe sails past on the Fife side.
These sands are situated on the banks of the Forth, about four miles northeast of the city centre, between Cramond and Granton. Stroll along the sands or beachside paths. Parking is available on the road parallel to the Sands. Silverknowes golf course is just to the rear, and a camping/caravanning site nearby. I even saw someone walking their ferret.
The second view shows the sands, the link to Cramond Island, and, in the background, the Forth Rail Bridge. If you cross to Cramond Island, beware - people have been cut off by the tides.
I dropped hubby off to give a lecture and took a walk around the area for an hour or so. His lecture started at 9.00am and all the shops didn't open until 10.00 so the place was deserted.... except for the odd car and bus..
This is a typical Edinburgh Day in winter, grey, wet and dull..... but oh so CLEAN.... I gave up and found a warm fuggy cafe and had a decent breakfast which cost around £4.50 including tea while waiting for 10.00am.

Walk the streets to get the real feel of this city, peer in windows (you never know who you may see) and admire the views from the highest tops.
