We started our day by the Castle we waited for the shot of the cannon, but one thing that pleased me to see it from above was the Garden we have to go there, even all wet because of rain and snow. We went lovely...More
How can you not love Edinburgh? Laden down with shopping, an hour to go until my train, what to do? Through the wee gate and into a calm oasis of beauty in the gaze of the majestic castle, that’s what.. it really is perfect. Plenty...More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
Sorry late in reply. Didn't go on the wheel so afraid don't know. The stalls were a wide variety - food stalls, drink, bespoke crafts, special clothing like knitted special clothes etc. Nice mix of things.
