It’s August, so we have a plethora of Street performers have descended on to Edinburgh for our entertainment purposes. I’ll post some pictures over the next few weeks. Below shots taken 4th August and 11th August

The New College, home of the School of Divinity part of the University of Edinburgh.
It originally opened its doors in 1846, the architecture is stunning very Hogwarts(ish)
It’s not just Edinburgh’s Old town that has spooky vaults, you can fine one in Gilmerton, about 4 miles southeast of the city. There you will find a wee surprise lurking under the ground.
Gilmerton Cove is a series of underground passageways and chambers hand carved from sandstone, dating from the 18th century. Folklore claims it was the work of an 18th century local blacksmith ‘George Paterson’.
However it’s original use is still a mystery theories claim that it was simply a drinking den for gentry, perhaps a refuge for persecuted Covenanters or smugglers? some even link this site to the Knight Templars (Imaginative folk who haven’t seen a map claim that there could be a secret passage leading to Melrose Abbey)
Similar post as the previous one, walking to work this morning ~07:37 this beautiful atmospheric red sky caught my eye, I had to stop and take this photo to share.
But as the old rhyme says:
Red sky at night, sailors’ delight; Red sky at morning, sailors take warning
Walking to work this morning, this tree in
Princes Street Gardens caught my eye. The colours of the leaves are changing, a nip was in the air autumn has arrived
