It was another really dreich day but this evening the rain stopped as we were on our way to an event in one of the elegant buildings in Charlotte Square so it was a quick phone blip.  Edinburgh’s New Town was designed by Robert Adam in 1791 with these houses being completed in 1820 and the Square is designated a Unesco World Heritage Site.  It became one of the most exclusive addresses in Scotland and now number 6 is the official home of the First Minister of Scotland and the NTS Georgian House is at number 7.
At present the grass in the central garden is a lush green but when the Edinburgh International Book Festival is held in August it will look very different.  Then the Square will come alive with thousands of visitors but this evening it was very quiet.
