This weekend I saw the world renowned Edinburgh Military Tattoo. My good friend Helen invited me along with her mum and dad to see the spectacle of bagpipers, drummers, Korean dancers, Mexican dancers and the very best of the world's military forces at the national icon that is Edinburgh Castle.

Over the weekend, I went along to the National Museum of Scotland's 'Museum after hours' event. The theme - well there was no direct theme but the Mary Queen of Scots Exhibition was the focal point of the festivities.

Meeting First Minister Alex Salmond and Saltire Awards

Posted by jamie on the 06 August 2013

Back in May, I attended First Minister Alex Salmond's reception at Edinburgh Castle for Saltire Awards. The reception was to celebrate the commitment and contribution of young people volunteering in our communities across Scotland. I took along Inverclyde's 500hr Saltire Awardees Stacey and Gareth. Once again it is great to see that at the top levels of government, our society is recognising our young people. Sorry its taken me so long to blog about this event but I just got emailed the picture (see below).
