cake at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. At the time I had wished we had eaten lunch there. Soon after arriving in Edinburgh late last year we took E's father to lunch there and returned again when E met an old friend for a coffee. It is a fantastic place to take kids and has lots of interesting activities as well as a bookstore.
Itchy Coo, and the Story of Clan Mingin and the Story of Clan McWee from GW Publishing.
John Knox's House which is entered through the Storytelling Centre. This time, with Sylvia being a bit older, we decided to visit the Museum of Childhood just across the road. It is a great museum with lots of games, toys, and more doll's than you can poke a stick at. I think E really wanted to go there for the penny arcade slot machines. His favourite is the Sweeney Todd one, where the man is seen to go to the barber and fall backwards into a baked pie.
Cramond instead. [By the way, it is 40 C today in Melbourne and I would love to be back in wintery Edinburgh]
