Hogmanay in Edinburgh

Happy New Year!  Spent Hogmanay in Edinburgh with family and friends. Had every intention of visiting the Sculpture Show at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art but curiously on our way there we found ourselves at our fave pub instead - The Bow Bar  in Victoria Street to sample some of their great ale including Chipotle Spiced Extra Porter - a spicy little number which catches the back of your throat with a welcoming heat to keep out the cold night air. Brewed by Tempest Brewery in Kelso its described as 'a smooth, complex dark ale infused with Mexican smoke dried jalapenos and cacao beans'.  Then nipped round the corner to another fave haunt Le Sept in Hunters' Square just off the Royal Mile for some of their fabulous French Onion Soup followed by crepes and chocolate terrine so we never did make it to the Sculpture Show. Tant pis.
