#FF Friday - Festival and Fringe!


The amazing Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo

Last weekend, my lovely friend Dina and I did what we have been talking about doing for years – we spent a long weekend in Edinburgh together doing The Festival, The Tattoo, and The Fringe. We had THE most amazing time. We did everything – including lunch at The Witchery, The Tattoo at the Castle, the ultimate Book-Fest (bumping into Neil Gaimen), Stand Up Comedy, Shows, chatting with Radio DJ Johnny Walker and pop diva Kiki Dee (who asked if I was from Liverpool – lol!) to finish off with a tour of Edinburgh’s old underground vaults with torture museum and spooky stuff all thrown in and then to clubbing at the famous Old Town Cowgate at Cabaret Voltaire. A weekend never to be forgotten!

It looks like you had an amazing time in Edinburgh, Janice. We didn't get there on this trip but have visited in the past and loved it.

Hi Janice .. sounds amazing - and you totally took it all in. Great experience ..

I used to watch the Military Tattoo when I was 'a kid' and loved it ... and I went with a cousin of my mother's .. but wasn't really into that sort of thing - I regret!

Cheers Hilary

Hi Melanie - it was an amazing time and it was so unfortunate that our paths didn't cross this summer while you were in Scotland. Next time!

Hi Hilary - this was the first time at the Tattoo for me and it was a surreal experience with the backdrop of the Castle and all those pipers. It was the lone piper stood on the battlements at the end that was the most rousing. And the fireworks of course. Wonderful!

Sounds great! I live so near Edinburgh and have still not got round to doing the Underground Vaults tour - thanks for the reminder!
