|Edinburgh's Old Town skyline|
Currently we are in Edinburgh for a few days visiting family and seeing some old friends. On Saturday, to celebrate Niall's birthday, we went out for lunch to the Bailie Bar in Stockbridge, which is on the edge of the New Town. The pub is a favourite of ours and we used to drop in regularly when we lived in Edinburgh. One of it's attractions is the lack of piped music and fruit machines; we prefer pubs without. It has never proported to be a gastro pub but the food is honest. Niall had lamb's liver with bacon and onions and I had a grilled chicken breast which had been coated in a herb crust.
Afterwards we drove up Arthur's seat--we were a bit too full of lunch to want to walk all the way up-- if you enlarge the photo you'll see people walking or jogging. The weather wasn't brilliantly sunny it at least it wasn't raining!
Yesterday we saw some friends and to day we're off to visit some family and have a wander round Edinburgh's center.
