Walking boots – check, kilt – check, training plan – check, blister plasters – double check!
What for? I hear you ask….. The Edinburgh Kiltwalk of course!
Next door to the Princes Street Suites is one of Edinburgh’s most fascinating hidden corners – the Old Calton Burying Ground.
It is a quiet and calm oasis right in the centre of the city, and offers a chance to step back hundreds of years into the city’s history. Important figures are buried there, but also more ordinary folk, and it is also unusual for a graveyard as it is not linked to any church. It was set up in the early 1700s by the tradesmen of the area as a way of generating money for their sick, elderly or widowed colleagues.
