Edinburgh April 2016
The (at least) annual visit to Scotland had us in Edinburgh in April, thanks to the post-Easter sale of first class Virgin trains. This time we stayed central, just across fro the old town at Ten Hill Place Hotel and discovers cheap and cheerful local Indian café, 10 to 10 in Delhi. Also we were closer than we thought to my favourite place in the city (one of my favourite places in the world) Peter's Yard.
We saved that for the last day's breakfast but just by walking towards the park along side it on first day, we found a new restaurant, No8 Lister Square for Sunday lunch. And we went back for a delightful dinner - even though a quiz started in the middle of it which we didn't enter but Tim frustratingly got virtually every question right!
Although the most modern part of the city, I love the QuarterMile development. It was this that made my love the city on my first visit in 2010 and I've watched it grow each time I've had the pleasure of going back.
On this Scottish trip I realise the opposite of what I believed is true; I thought I liked Glasgow more but actually, I like Edinburgh because it has more neighbourhoods I would live in. I love Glasgow just for the West End and really dislike the 'downtown' part of the city. If I decided I was moving to Scotland, it would be Edinburgh.
