Edinburgh sightseeing: National Museum of Scotland with balcony cafe
As you can see it is an imposing Victorian museum and in the early 21st Century the very modern Museum of Scotland, was built adjacent to the former Royal Scottish Museum (on the right of the photo) to focus on Scotland's history. In 2006 they merged to form the National Museum of Scotland. To E they are still just the Royal Scottish Museum or the Chambers Street Museum.
While today I am writing about the balcony cafe, there is also a basement Museum Brasserie for more restaurant-style meals and the Tower Restaurant that is very posh. I was lucky enough to be taken there in 2002. The food was fantastic and fancy, and the views of the castle were superb. Maybe one day I will manage to return.
We didn't stay at the museum long unless you include a convoluted route to the toilets. E was set on getting to the Grassmarket Market.
Summerhall so I headed for the cake display while Sylvia chose the kid's box again.
