For anyone coming to Edinburgh next weekend and interested in seeing parts of the city not usually open to members of the public, this extract from a Visit Scotland newsletter might be of interest
” Edinburgh Doors Open Days
25 + 26 September 2010.

Some of this year’s highlights include:-
The City Chambers, High Street
Filmhouse, Lothian Road
Japanese House, Bellfield Lane, Portobello
Lothian Buses Central Garage, Annandale Street
Talbot Rice Gallery, South Bridge
