Royal Mile 3 - Whisky Heritage...?

One of the distinctive features of the Royal Mile is the people trying to lure you into their heritage/panoramic/ghostly visitor attractions whilst wearing fancy or period dress! This guy has ditched the more traditional period costume in favour of a whisky barrel to promote the Scotch Whisky Experience, at the top of the Royal Mile.


The girl to the left in the beautiful red frock is promoting Gladstone's Land, a 17th century house owned by the National Trust for Scotland. I particularly like the very un-period shoes!

Come back tomorrow for the next instalment of the Royal Mile tour (I am still away).

Oh they're great pictures. I've never been to the whisky experience place - I'm not a big whisky fan to be honest, and I think if I took my husband there we'd never get out again!

Love the girl's shoes too - well-spotted!

I guess that's where the old expression "Roll out the barrel" comes from!

At least the shoes coordinate with her period outfit.

I imagine she has a long day standing in those shoes...
