I am sitting at work looking out on to West Parliament Square in Edinburgh. The tourists are flooding the place and most look quite happy - nice. There is a young man sitting beside St Giles Cathedral playing a clarsach - I think the tune is "Dark Island" - which lends an air of serenity to a chaotic scene.
It has just clouded over after a morning of blue skies and scuddy white clouds. It is very warm but, judging by the past few days, it will rain before dark. Edinburgh seems to have missed out on the heatwave so far.
