DS is at a birthday party just outside Gorebridge so I’ll be kicking my heels for three hours! I’ve been trying to see if there’s any nice coffee shops or cafes in the area, or alternatively nice walks. We’re too far away for me to go home in between and I think it’s a bit far to go into Edinburgh and back again?
Yeah, I think Straiton might be my best bet. There doesn’t seem to be much in Gorebridge itself. Last time I went to Straiton I got hopelessly lost trying to find my way back to the bypass. Let’s hope I’m a bit more competent this time.
Yep, if we’d been 5 minutes earlier we would have missed it! We were just past the junction 2 exit and it was just past the slip road for traffic joining at junction 2. Big chunk out of the side of the caravan.
Dobbie’s is still full of grannie’s having their cream teas.
Too late for you this time but do you know Dalkeith Country Park? It's the grounds of Dalkeith Palace, and as well as a children's play area they've converted the old stable buildings into a lovely shop, restaurant and café. Well worth a visit.
