    I hope to be back to Edinburgh soon, too!

    Here are some of the places I can recommend:

    - walk up Calton Hill, Arthur's Seat or Salisbury Craigs for a pleasant stroll and great views

    - relax in the Princes Street Gardens, my favourite places there are the big fountain and the small old kirkyard (both west end)

    - live music at Scotsman's Lounge (Cockburn Street) or The Mitre (Royal Mile)
    - good pub food and sports on TV at the Conan Doyle (York Place)
    - B&B Straven Guesthouse in Portobello, just some steps to the Portobello Beach

    - Ghost Walks are quite fun, Mary King's Close was very interesting
    - museum cafeterias for a snack at lunch or tea time, we liked
    the Fruitmarket Gallery Café and the City Art Centre Café
    - good fresh fish meals at Newhaven Harbour (lovely lighthouse there, too)

    Definately go to Calton Hill. It was the first place we went when we came to Edinburgh. The view is spectacular. The Mercat ghost tour was sort of neat if you're into that thing. And if you're really short on cash ...just chill in Princes gardens and people watch.

    One more trip you can make Lucy is to tap the nose of GREYFRIARS BOBBY !.He's a bonnie wee dug. I'm sure you'll get the full history.
    I've been a visitor to Emmbra over the past 50 years and never miss a wee word wi' BOB, however brief the visit. Weird innit ?
    Have agreat trip and I'm sure you'll be well received and enjoy yourself.

    Blast it! I wish I'd been able to seen this when I was there! Though, was outfitted out in Highland Garb doing a Re-enactment at the Castle with the White Cockades at the time---would've been rather fun to have dressed like this and walked the town at night. Heh, we ALL could've done this---Scots and English dressed in period costume.... O,o
