While riding on the subway in Glasgow, an ad for the Taste of Edinburgh happened to catch my eye. Too bad we wouldn’t be in Edinburgh for a few more days, I thought. Then I saw the event dates: it started the Friday we’d be in Edinburgh! Upon our return to our hotel, I immediately purchased tickets.
And they were well worth the modest price; the weather was beautiful (from what we understand, days without rain in Scotland are a blessing) and the food was amazing.
