Edinburgh – Day 3

My mum’s an abstract painter, so while I’m researching about writers in the area, she’s looking for the nearest contemporary art museum. In the process of researching where the one in Edinburgh was, she discovered it was a bit far away, but there was a place nearby called ‘Dean Village’. Dean Village is a residential part of Edinburgh and the name ‘Dean’ comes from the Old English word ‘denu’ meaning ‘deep valley’. It’s also my surname coming from the paternal side of my family.

On the way to the contemporary art museum, we found a pretty cool bookshop. I could’ve spent all day there. Didn’t get any of the bookshop, but got these on the way there.

Then we happened upon a river walk. I could’ve stayed there for longer, but when you’re taking a family trip, you’ve never been to the city, and you don’t want to get lost, sometimes it’s best to stay with the rest of the family. On the other side of the river walk was Dean Village.

Later, we went out to dinner and on a wander. We got a rather nice sunset.

We were also struggling with the fact we were leaving early the next morning for Oban.
