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.

Edinburgh has the additional advantage of having easy access to the countryside, beaches and the Highlands – no endless queues of traffic on bank holiday weekends.

There are many wonderful walks in and around the city centre and also open-topped bus tours. On the cultural front, there is a wide choice of excellent concerts, exhibitions, theatre, cinema and comedy on offer.
Other attractions include Holyrood Palace, the Royal Yacht Britannia, Camera Obscura and Dynamic Earth.

It is also very child friendly with plenty to keep the young ones happy, the newly refurbished National Museum of Scotland being a good starting point.

I could continue vaunting the merits of Edinburgh but I prefer to invite you to come and discover its joys for yourselves.

And one day Edinburgh will have its trams….

According to normal practice, for the everyday running of MM, I shall follow this rule on word length, in that each of my pre-selected link words contains at least four letters and at most eight letters. Stray outside this range and you will be wasting one of your attempts!
Each of the selected link words may go in front of, or behind my challenge word.
The competition will officially close on Sunday Evening at 7.00pm, when gen2 will declare my pre-selected words and then apply the same rules for awarding points that have been applied during all MM Link Games in the past. My set of four words to have their links predicted should appear below at 9.00am.
"And one day Edinburgh will have its trams…."
It used to, and I can remember travelling on them and whilst on one being shown by my mother the new coinage minted for QE II.
