As an enthusiastic but relatively unskilled photographer, I found the tour by James Christie of Rosslyn Chapel and the Border Abbeys ( Melrose, Dryburgh, Jedburgh and Kelso) fulfilled my expectations in every way. He explained in the simplest way the basics of camera functions and...More

Wonderful, personalized tour and photography lessons! The day started out rainy, so wasn't expecting to get the greatest of pictures, but with James' lessons, even the pictures in dreary weather were special. I've been taking SLR pictures for over 35 years, starting the old fashioned...More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
