Wonderful, wonderful city, the buildings are absolutely superb, the tourists even more so & the street theatre, too good to single anyone out :wink:

I hear they've got a nice castle too...

"Heave awa' lads, I'm no deid yet"
From http://www.rampantscotland.com/
On 24 November, 1861, the 250 year-old houses at 99 and 103 High Street, on the Royal Mile, collapsed. 35 of the occupants were killed but as the debris was being cleared away, a young lad was heard to shout out from within the collapsed building "Heave awa' lads, I'm no deid yet". The memorial inscription above Paisley Close, which was built in place of the collapsed houses, has a more anglicised, middle-class interpretation of what was said - "Heave awa' chaps, I'm no' dead yet". The tragedy (and the overcrowding which was prevalent at that time) resulted in the creation of a Medical Officer of Health in Edinburgh for the first time.

Well there has been a consideation toward making the GLAGSOW projects threads more strictly Glasgow, as was the still stated intention. Anythin other than Glasgow is deviation and as such should really forfeit a point!!! ;)

So, you heard it here first. You deviant!

Perhaps the Hidden Edinburgh franchise bneeds to eb rolled out!

Hollowhorn,

Did you enjoy the Tatoo. Heard that it was the best for a number of years!
Couldn't be there myself :cry: but this cheered me up :D
