Well, I reached the age on my birthday, earlier this year, where I now qualify for a Scottish National Entitlement Card. The so-called, Saltire Card, enables me to travel for free on buses throughout Scotland. As a bonus, also on the trams in Edinburgh.
My wife and I had the great pleasure of dining, recently, at The Scottish Café & Restaurant. It nestles beneath the Scottish National Gallery on The Mound, just off Princes Street in Edinburgh.
My wife and I spent a great night out together at a concert on 10 February 2018. We went to see, award-winning English singer/songwriter, Seal. The venue; the beautiful Edwardian building, known as The Usher Hall, in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is Scotland’s only five-star concert hall, boasting amazing acoustics, and has hosted concerts since 1914.
My wife and I have been meaning to go to Punjabi Junction for a long time now. So, we took the plunge and got on the bus to the foot of Edinburgh’s legendary Leith Walk to visit the “little royal blue café”.
Just a short distance from where I live, lies the pretty village and harbour of Newhaven.
Granton Harbour, Edinburgh, lies to the north of the city. Here’s a potted history. Enjoy!
