This is Morgan Le Fay back to challenge you for week number 3.

Although it is generally accepted that you don’t appreciate your own home town or city, I must confess that I really am quite proud to be an adopted “Edinburgher” of 20-odd years standing.

I realised this recently as I was sauntering down the Mound on a beautiful autumnal day. Looking over the rooftops of the National Gallery, I could see the River Forth and my native Kingdom of Fife in the distance, the imposing Arthur’s Seat guarding the city to the right.

The narrow, dark and at times spooky streets of the old town and the grandiose streets and crescents of the new town, the castle, hills and green spaces make Edinburgh a city of contrasts, a worthy capital city.

One fine feature of the City is the beautifully tended Princes Street gardens nestling between the castle and the towering Scott Monument, where Edinburgh’s office workers descend in force on sunny days to enjoy their packed lunches. Another favourite is the Royal Botanic Gardens with 70 acres of landscaped grounds and glass houses full of exotic plants and trees.

Autumn has always been my favourite time in Edinburgh in the aftermath of festival frenzy when the city is once again returned to its citizens.
Okay, the tram works have just recommenced with all the inconvenience, but as a pedestrian I find it a bonus that the Mound and Princes Street are currently without their usual endless streams of traffic.
