New Town Front Door

9 Aug

During the hectic month of August, there is nothing I love more than walking through the New Town on a sunny day and admiring the beautiful houses, in particular the wonderful front doors.  The roads are lovely and wide and filled with light, and there is a beautiful calm about the side streets that is the perfect antidote to bustling crowds of the centre of town.

Beltane

For anyone who doesn’t know, The Beltane Fire Festival is “a unique and wild procession of fire, drumming and revelry on Calton Hill”.  Basically lots of fire and bodypaint and drums and colour.  It was a beautiful atmospheric evening and the drumming was A-MAZ-ING.  Did anyone else go?

Isn’t that a nice, bright uniform?  I think I am probably going to be gone by the time Waverley Station is finished, but it’s going to look so good when it’s done.  How exciting.
