Edinburgh - Dinner at the New Club
The New Club in Edinburgh, established 1787, is now located on the site it has occupied since 1837 , but in a new building constructed in the 1960s, which accomodated the panelling of the 1837 Club. Mainly lit by daylight, it combines the best of the 19th century fixtures with top class 20th century design.
We dined in the Long Room, with a view of the Castle.
After dinner, about 10.30 pm we sat out on the New Club terrace for a chat and a glass or so of wine - it was a lovely warm evening, very unusual for Edinburgh.
|Friday 25th||Rosslyn Chapel, and Thirlestane|
Traquair House and Lochcarron, Selkirk, formal dinner in Edinburgh
We enjoyed a visit to Lochcarron in Selkirk wheremembers bought abut 6 metres of tartan and a kilt was ordered. Lots of nice goodies to see and buy!
