We all had a great time in Edinburgh this weekend! We looked at flats to buy - probably not successful this time either :-( -  so we mainly enjoyed being tourists!

We stayed in an apartment hotel called Knights Residence just below the castle (not the picture on the left which is from NewTown!). The staff were extremely friendly (as all Scots I have met so far are!) and the flat was amazing. Completely exceeded our expections! I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Edinburgh! Particularly if you are going for the Edinburgh Festival as it is right around the corner from the major music and theatre arenas.

As we went up with the in-laws we had a two-bedroom flat with a sofa bed in the living room for Our Boy. There was a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher (not that we did any domestic chores...), and complementary breakfast stuff as well as a bottle of Champagne and chocolates as it was Valentine's Weekend. Can't beat that, can you?

Even if the weather was not the best, it kind of fits a rather gothic city. We walked a lot and also went on the tourist buses and learnt a lot about this great city. Did you get the impression that I like this city?

The old town is full of quirky narrow passages. Got to have good shoes when you walk around as there are lots of hills in this city.
This picture of Water of Leith is taken in Dean Village.

I loved the name of this shop on the Mound. Can't remember what they sold, it was the name that mattered to me!
