walk along the water of Leith and include Modern Art Galleries.

Or Arthur's Seat for a view of it all.

Don't try and get anywhere by bus would be my other tip.

If just coming in to the centre then walking the royal mile covers a lot of pretty interesting history. Some of the tours are good and are maybe only an hour, then time for a wee drink in one of the trad pubs or a tin up calton hill :msnparty:

Oh, or do a podwalk, exploring and listening to stories and poems inspired by the city of Edinburgh. Produced by Miriam Johnson and narrated by Natalie Barrett!!

Thanks everyone for all the ideas! We have just an hour and a half before a work team dinner so I think a wander up the high streeet listening to your podcast Scraps and a wee dram might be best. I however will be going to Jupiter Artland and haven't been to the Museum in ages ! :gbanana: :heart:
