We’ve been wandering with the dog at Craighouse, in Morningside, on and off since we arrived in Edinburgh in 2011.
It’s a place with a fascinating history and a turbulent present. It reminds me of being nine, roaming fields on the outskirts of Aberdeen and finding a burned out mansion where we played Gone With The Wind.
The views over Edinburgh are the best I’ve ever seen.
You can watch fireworks at the castle from the orchard. If you haven’t been, go soon before the current chapter flips over to another story.
