Christine's style is very warm, professional and engaging, with a genuine sincerity. In addition to providing interpretation along the route, she also gave useful information of many of the attractions, suggesting the best time of day to visit the castle and how long a visitor would need.

Today - EF Students from Georgia. We started out from Pollock Halls student accommodation beside the Royal Commonwealth Pool - at this time of year they become tourist flats. Around the city, to the castle and of course their photo shoot in Holyrood Park. Amazed that this lot were still awake - they'd been out ceilidh dancing last night and early this morning some claimed to have climbed Athurs Seat (280 ft above sea level - did they ..... well they said so.

A great afternoon with cruise passengers from the Royal Princess docked at South Queensferry. It had rained all mornng until we came out! We were so lucky, it even rained while we were on the coach into Edinburgh. But when we stopped - the rain stopped too - how lucky was that?A visit up to Edinburgh Castle and then as my old friend used to say 'aroon the toon'. Their crew member (young lady in woolly hat!) was extremely tired and took a chance of a cat nap whilst many stepped off for a photo shoot in Holyrood Park - I caught her -ha ha. Couldn't help it - she looked so peaceful.

Today an extended half day tour into a whole day. This group of Doctors from Vietnam had a right royal day. I joined them at their hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The sun shone all day and it was a good one. Starting at Edinburgh Castle and then into the Scotch Whisky Experience. A lot of interest and practice using the special 'nosing' glasses to get the best from their whisky tasting which is initially done with smell before they got to taste. . Down to Grassmarket for lunch at the Beehive Inn and then to the Palace of Holyrood House. Finally a quick bit of shopping before I waved them on their way to Glasgow for their next day's conference. Not bad for a working holiday...

They do say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb - let's see when the time comes... Edinburgh is on a 'Red' weather warning. Don't think I remember such a thing. Amber yes but Red? No tranport - public or private.
Today's group are from Indonesia and staying at the Doubletree Hotel in Bread St ( In days gone by it was St Cuthberts Store - Seon Connery did a milk round from the dairy at the back) Had to walk to the hotel to make contact and remake what they were going to do. Should have been a coach tour and visit to the castle. But the castle like everywhere else in the city was closed and no transport was running. So for those that were dressed appropriately and willing to brave it, I offerred to take them on a short walk up to the castle and surrounds. We followed on foot behind a snowplough and ventured up onto the castle esplanade - virgin snow and beautiful - photo shoot and selfies. We then skirted around the top of the Royal Mile and returned to their hotel. Very different but a lovely morning.
