I’m certain they got endless comments about it — it was beautiful. I think the something about the tongue is that it’s so enormous!

Anyway, great pictures!

It’s now full of museums and memorials so it takes some time to walk through. The views of the city from there are also wonderful, whether sunny or cloudy.

Dogmanay was a lot of fun. The owners of the dog pictured above just wrote me saying how excited to see their dog on our blog. Good dogs, great owners.

@Mona: You’re welcome. Edinburgh also surprised us with its charm and beauty.

Btw, Edinburgh castle, is it huge. I visited Windsor castle, and it was beautiful but not as big as I had in my imagination. Edinburgh also looks cozy but not grand. Love Dogmanay. I love dogs of all stripes (except those that come at me in a snarly way)..

They do know how to show everyone a good time and make them feel welcome. You did have to keep an eye out at the torchlight procession to make sure there were no flames close to your head. But, as far as I know no one was hurt and it was a beautiful sight with all those flames…

I went to Edinburgh a few years ago for the ‘make poverty history’march and loved it. Never been to Hogmanay, but I know the Scots know how to party, so bet it was a blast. Can’t believe all those people are walking around with fire torches though.

I wish I could have made it to Hogmanay. I’m in love with Endinburgh, and would have loved to spend the new year there.

We were rather lucky to catch Wiseman’s talk as we entered the National Museum just as his last talk of the day was beginning.

Dan and I really enjoyed meeting you during Hogmanay. And you may see us again in Edinburgh soon….we hope, at least.

@Andy: It seems like every nook and cranny of Edinburgh’s old town has a legend or story attached to it. A beautiful place that draws you in.

Although I’ve never been to Ireland (so I can’t compare), I would recommend making a side trip over to Scotland after TBEX. That time of year should be nice as well – the autumn colors are supposed to be fabulous then.
