Edinburgh Christmas Lights

I decided to use Periscope and go live when I was walking along Princes street in Edinburgh to see the Christmas Lights 5/12/18.

It was pretty cool seeing the Chrismas Market been light up in the Princes Street Gardens

After waking along I decided to go on the Forth One Big Wheel, which you can get a more better view of the City Centre.

This was amazing view to see all the lights in the dark, im not really one for the darn night but this was outsranding to See.

Lothian Buses Open Day

I visited Lothian Buses Open Day at Annandale Street in Edinburgh for the first time because I knew Lothian Motorcoaches where going to be there 29/9/18.

I arrived at Annandale at 11:30am, Waiting in the queue to get in and i was not far from the entrance.

Having a look around the depot was very impressive seeing all the vehicle buses displayed  also getting information and tips about the services

My favourite part was when I got to Lothian Motorcoaches, it was great to finally meet both of the Coaching and Touring Manners (Willie Hamilton & Kevin Slater) also some of the team too.

Willie Hamilton Is a giant compare to me because he is so tall, i had to step back and look up hehe.   Should of asked Willie to get down on his knees and then he would be the same size as me, oh dam I wished i did PMSL oh well maybe next time huh.

Kevin Slater was very interesting to tell me a few things about there Tours coming up and a little bit about there service they provide at Lothian Motorcoaches.  Awwww thanks kevin, he is so adorable friendly bubbly guy.

What I’ve learned and seen from this service, has been fantasticalso to knew there improving things all the time to suit everyone needs and to show them an great experience  that they have not seen before.

Interesting fact about Lothian Motorcoaches, is that they have 10 double decker, 5 new 61 seat coaches, 3 x 50+ seat coaches and 2 x 16 seat new minibuses plus a lot of vintage vehicles.

Lothian Motorcoaches have there new Tour Brochure out now, to get a copy just visit one of Lothian Buses Travel Shops.

 

The out come of visiting Lothian Buses Open Day was really good and well worth the visit for a couple of hours.  Thank you Lothian Buses and the rest of the services.

Edinburgh Bus Tours

I went on the Edinburgh Bus Tours to see more  of Edinburgh that I might not came across before.  It was very interesting plus I actually learned a few things going round the city.  I am from Edinburgh for 4 years and when you life somewhere, you tend not to explore the place because you live they, I’m glad I took some notice in the hometown I life in.

Edinburgh Bus Tours are well recommended and ideal to explore the City of Edinburgh and to learn so much about the Old Twn/New Town of Edinburgh.

If your visiting Edinburgh for the first time, you will be impressed with the history of the Capital Historic city and with the scenic views from the open tops.  .

There is so much to see from Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, Our Dynamic Earth, Royal Yacht Britannia and so much more, something not to be missed.

Edinburgh Bus Tours  has 3 Tours buses and the green Edinburgh Tour has a Live Guide and the bue Majestic Tour has earphone.   There is 14 stops that you can top off/on the location.

The bus stop will show you a sign with Edinburgh Bus Tours on it, if you don’t see it, that means the Edinburgh Bus Tours won’t stop there.

I20180717_144212

walked the  Heritage trail 17/7/18.  I have never been here till now and I’m so glad I did because it’s the perfect walk to go on.

Just walking thru was so relaxing with a warm air, really nice to walk your dog of just with friends/family.

There is a few pond/rivers, even past a house stable and a few more things on the way.

There is a cafe for some refreshments and to sit down and relax till you make your way to your next destination.

Well recommended, if you love walking in a nice peaceful area
