Choose Edinburgh's 101th Object

If you are unfamiliar with the initiative, Edinburgh's 101 Objects is a collection of Ediburgh's most treasured objects ranging from the world's first blended Scotch whisky to Dolly the cloned sheep. You can read my earlier post featuring my favourite objects here.
Did you know you can have your say and suggest what should be the 101th Object: The People's Choice? What will you choose: perhaps the Balmoral clock, chippy sauce or Greyfriars Bobby? Get involved here.

Check out the Queensferry Crossing

The Queensferry Crossing is finally open - in fact this weekend 50,000 people will walk it. Are you among the lucky ones who got selected by ballot? If not, you can still enjoy the view of the three bridges from the picturesque South Queensferry (or North Queensferry). Expect the area to be pretty busy!


Farm Fest

Head to Gorgie City Farm this Saturday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of opening the farm. There will be cute farm animals, live music, face painting, raffle and other fun activities. The event is on between 10am and 6pm and the entry is free (although donations to the Farm are much appreciated).


Tour of Britain

This weekend the Tour of Britain comes to Edinburgh for the very first time - if you are into cycling, you should not miss it. Mark Cavendish will be here too. Find full spectator info here.

Have a nice weekend!
