A very wet day in the capital, perfect weather for a new umbrella

The rain hasn’t stopped pouring down today in Edinburgh, and thoughts go to a Scottish must have: The brolly.

The famous Black Bull pub on Leith Street, opposite the current building site that was St James’ Hotel and shopping centre. I’ve lived in both the East and West of Edinburgh and when I stayed in Pilrig Street just off Leith Walk this was a daily sight as I made my way from Leith Walk […]
