Welcome to Edinburgh Notes, an eclectic selection of Edinburgh jottings. The site is partly a city guide, part a history, partly a personal collection of "best bits" and ideas for what to do whilst you're here. Enjoy your visit, both to this website and to the city.
All original material on this website is written by Trevor Mendham, an Englishman now living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland. I hope you find some of it interesting, whether you're a tourist or a local, and that it gives you some ideas for where to go and how to spend your time. Edinburgh has a fascinating and sometimes dark history as well as being home to some of the most popular of Scotland's attractions.
Here are a few of the latest site additions:
The Elephant House
The Ross Fountain
Princes Street Gardens
