For christmas I received a book voucher from my brother. I bought two books, one of which was Edinburgh for Under Fives.
This book is Fab (with a capital F!!). It’s basically a directory of Edinburgh written by parents for parents. It covers everything a mum (or dad) living in Edinburgh requires, from local attractions to eateries suitable for the littl’uns, nurseries and healthcare info. Jam-packed. We couldn’t wait to get started on the crux of the book, which is the attractions or ‘places to go’ part.
We set off for The Dean Gallery via sainsburys at blackhall for a sausage buttie and a coffee (very nice, and reasonably priced too!).
We enjoyed the Dean Gallery a lot, it was Erin’s first foray into the world of modern art and she seemed to enjoy it until the peace and tranquility sent her to sleep. Accurately noted by the book, the highlights were Paolozzi’s Vulcan and his restored studio. The gift shop was great, and the only disappointment was upstairs being closed as they were changing exhibitions. A great mini trip, that was absolutely free.
