Oh ... the music of the bagpipes and drums, the fireworks in Princes Street and the gardens overlooked by Edinburgh Castle, the many parties, first footing, people dressed in kilts of various colours depending on their clans, and of course whisky ... plenty of whisky, with a bit of haggis if you wish.
EDINBURGH CASTLE SEEN FROM PRINCES STREET
It's great fun going to parties and singing Auld Lang Syne to the sound of bagpipes and have men and women dancing in their national costumes. I tell you, Edinburgh is the place to be on New Year's eve.
People have often wondered what is worn beneath a kilt, and a true lady would, of course, never ask. Although she might well find out in her own time.
However, two things I can tell you about kilts. It can be quite cold when the wind is blowing in a Southerly direction and, more important, you have to be very careful not to get too close to a very hot range stove in the kitchen when you are at one of those parties. As happened to ... a friend of mine.
I assure you, it can be quite embarrassing in hospital having a couple of nurses putting soothing cream on one's ... his ... derriere.
