Edinburgh sparkles in its festive costume, like this huge bow around the Rutland Hotel.
I love the way the city transforms for Christmas and I can’t help getting carried away with it all, the lights along the street, the trees in the windows and the music in all the shops.
So I give huge thanks to all those who help make the transformation complete, like this building which is home to the Huxley, Kyloe and the Rutland Hotel, whose sign lies beneath the wrapping.
Shortly the decorations will be taken down, as they are in my house and put away for another year. Let the countdown to Christmas 2020 begin!
