I feel like if I ever visited Edinburgh, I would never leave.
It is a truly-amazing place. Please do visit.

I used to be able to spend quite a bit of time there, but nowadays it's rare for me to be able to see any more than one Fringe show, and possibly a few brief visits in passing every couple of years.

Mind you, a couple of weeks back I had the enjoyable experience of a Dome Night at Edinburgh's stunning "My Dynamic Earth", this was based around Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon'. Incredible. www.dynamicearth.co.uk/latest/blog/dark-side-of-the-moon-fringe-dome-nights

@gordonrutter - I shan't make any extravagant promises, but I might pop my head into the Grassmarket one of those Tuesdays. Sounds very interesting.

They are, in general, getting less awful over the 25 years I've been in Glasgow. I think.

Until the attack on the priest last year :(

Accidentally came across one blocking a main route in town last season. My friend and I gravitated towards an impromptu sing-a-long next to the road through Nelson Mandela Place and spent the time giving it laldy to Fields of Athenry, Grace and Come Out You Black and Tans.

I don't think I've ever sung them in anger before :( hate breeds hate.

Lamentably, sectarianism is endemic and passed on to the next generation.

Anyway, you so reminded myself of this classic Rikki Fulton sketch, dating from around the time Rangers were perceived to have a strict policy on not signing Catholics.

Gave myself such a laugh, thought it was maybe worth a wee mention!
