Edinburgh’s Rose Street and New Shoes

With just a little curiosity it was easy to find out a lot about Edinburgh’s Rose Street, without opening Google once.

The street is beautiful, and well-maintained and a fascinating journey.

If you are paying attention, the street is artistically stunning to walk on.

Scotts of Rose Street

Famous for a few reasons.  Orsen Wells had a drink here in 1958, and Dan Brown wrote the final chapter of The Davinci Code while having a drink here.

Love the sense of humour in Scotland.

New Shoes – No Blues

I was delighted to discover shoe shops offering high quality shoes on Rose Street.

You may have seen my post on Shoes for Carry-On luggage.

Well, after my stint in the Highlands, I realised my Mephistos, after 3 years of full-on wear, might also need replacing.

They did stock some Mephistos, but they weren’t as nice or comfortable as the previous models, so instead I opted for a awesome pair of Rieker walking shoes.

Breathable, light and sooooo comfortable.

Putting my worn-out Mephistos was still difficult to do though.

Time to Go

The nearest train station was Haymarket, so didn’t have to go into the main train station.
