This week’s theme is the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. I’ve only spent a day in Edinburgh with my camera to date, but instantly fell in love. It’s a much older city than Cardiff, with a richer history that the Scots have preserved in a way that the Welsh sadly haven’t. It’s also a much cleaner city than London, and in my experience the people are much friendlier too. There is much to explore through a lens, and I am looking forward to a longer stay there soon.
And if I had the money, I’d treat Mrs H to a stay at The Witchery, a luxurious hotel and restaurant at the top of the Royal Mile, not far from the castle. Hidden behind the fine buildings of Old Town, with thousands of tourists streaming past, it’s gilded sign nevertheless stands out from the throngs, and it certainly caught my eye that afternoon.
