With the rain lashing down, we decided to walk into Edinburgh city centre. It’s a beautiful place, easily ranking alongside Dublin in my “top capital cities” gauge.
We decided to take shelter in the Scottish national gallery (which is home to some truly spectacular pieces, and as luck would have it, is open late on Thursday nights).
While there we discovered that renowned harpist Alina Bzhezhinska would be playing a short concert. We sat and admired the art while listening to the beautiful sounds of the harp, both classical and contemporary. A truly magical performance.
On the way back to the b&b we stopped for some Italian cuisine (I felt it fit with the cosmopolitan theme of our evening), after which the rain had practically stopped too.
All in all, a truly remarkable visit to a truly remarkable city.
