From 1477 the Grassmarket which lies at the foot of Edinburgh Castle was used not only as a marketplace but a place of executions . Today the place is a tourist haunt being surrounded by pubs and restaurants
We've just had a few days away North of the Border in Edinburgh so over the next few days I'll be publishing a few photos. Snapped the coffee with the chocolate shaped crown at the Palace ofHolyroodhouse. Not much change from a ten pound note for this lot !!!!
Well both Manchester teams won their qualifying games today but it was a struggle for both of them - leaving it very late in the day to score goals !!! United beat Yeovil 2-0 and City beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1. Let's hope that standards improve for the next round. Saturday saw local team Rochdale beat Nottingham Forrest 1-0 - well done!!! .
