We travelled up to Edinburgh on Friday evening, staying at Craigmoss Guest House. Porridge for me and a full Scottish breakfast for my husband. The breakfast was delicious, our bedroom was very clean (until we moved in) and the owners were very friendly, even ironing my husband’s shirt for him. My only points for improvement would be a bit of a revamp on the decoration front and those little jam jars (I collect them) instead of plastic tubs of jam at breakfast.
On Saturday morning we managed to fit in a run up Arthur’s Seat before heading over to the wedding at The Hub. The bride and bridesmaids looked absolutely beautiful (the groom looked handsome too) and the ceremony was lovely with only one small hitch-when the celebrant said the wrong name, well at least it wasn’t the groom! It was also lovely to catch up with all my ever growing family and the ceilidh was, as always, great fun.
The fun continued on Sunday as we went for a group walk up Arthur’s seat followed by a fantastic buffet back in the bride’s home village. We also stopped off in Durham for dinner on the way home. Lots of new restaurants, shops and bars have opened up since we were last there, but it was good to see our old favourites- Klute, The Picnic Basket, Sammy’s and La Spaghettata were all still there. Without considering anywhere else we headed straight to La Spag for a cheap and cheerful (and very tasty) dinner. A perfect end to a wonderful weekend.
Durham Cathedral, still there too
