Sightseeing in Edinburgh, Scotland!


Sightseeing in Edinburgh, Scotland!

I’m here – I’m finally back in Edinburgh, after a lapse of about – well, never mind, I don’t want to give away my age! LOL! We’ve moved over from our week in Glasgow, and have settled into our Aparthotel in Edinburgh, just off the Royal Mile. Now we’re ready for some serious sightseeing in Edinburgh, Scotland – the capital city!

In case you’ve never been here (poor soul – do something about that as soon as you can, will you!) THIS SITE proclaims itself to be ‘THE OFFICIAL’ Guide to Edinburgh – be sure to have a look!

In case you can’t tell, I’m a little excited to be here 🙂  I was a pre-teen last time we were here, and now I get to visit with my youngest son (a not-too young 19 yr old), who will soon be settling into to his studies at Edinburgh College.


If you like to have a relaxing time, personal space, and down time, then DON’T come to Edinburgh in August! Everything – I mean EVERYTHING – is happening this month!

There’s the:

Edinburgh Art Festival – Aug. 1st – 27th

Edinburgh Fringe Festival – Aug. 4th – 27th

Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo – Aug. 4th – 26th

Edinburgh International Festival – Aug. 4th -28th

Edinburgh International Book Festival – Aug. 12th – 28th.

Plus, we have family (whom we visited with last year when we stayed in Scotland, London and Liverpool) who will be coming into Edinburgh to visit with us, and take a trip to Falkirk to see the Kelpies.  More on the Kelpies later – I can’t WAIT to see them!!


As  well as I can, I’ll be sharing what we’re doing, the sights we see and some ‘top places’ that we see/things we do.  Hopefully I can share pictures as well, given that I will only have my phone and iPad to work from (and I’m a bit technically challenged!).


I hope you’ll visit back to check out my adventures! I’ve also pre-scheduled a number of posts with projects for you. Also, as a ‘THANK YOU’ for shopping with me while I’m away, everyone who places an order of min. $25 (before tax/shipping) during August using HOST CODE NPSAM4B2, will receive a special gift from me in September – from the Holiday Catalogue!

Click on the SHOPPING CART image below to go directly to my online store.  You can shop there all day, any day; even in your jammies or from your work desk! ssshhhh-I won’t tell!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
