Edinburgh Sightseeing: Cafe at the Palace (of Holyroodhouse)
King's Bedchamber, of Mary Queen of Scots' impressive wooden painted bedroom ceiling or the wall of portraits in the Great Gallery.
It was all grand and beautiful and fascinating. Lots of huge tapestries, portraits, spiral staircases, delft tiles in fireplaces, deep window seats and large chests. Sylvia would have loved to sit on the thrones, I would have loved to have a go at playing the harpsichord and E was fascinated with the curiosities in Mary Queen of Scots' Outer Chamber. We all could have done without the hoards of French school children.
Mimi's Bakehouse for a cuppa and at Cranacham and Crowdie for some excellent Scottish produce. We enjoyed browsing in Unknown Pleasures, Ragamuffin and Pinnies and Poppyseeds. E was delighted to find there is still a branch of Avalanche record shop in Edinburgh. We also hope to get back to Serenity Cafe and Procaffeination. So much to do and so little time to blog about it all.
