My husband is a retired Police Chief Inspector and I am a retired Personal Assistant. We have 2 adult children who may travel with us. We live in Edinburgh the capital city of Scotland. Edinburgh is a wonderful city and has been voted for the past 10 years the best place to live for quality of life in the UK!

In our city, we have several castles, a palace, botanical gardens and many art galleries and museums to visit - most are free to enter! We have many festivals in August including Film/Jazz/International/Fringe and Book Festivals and the famous 'Edinburgh Military Tattoo'.  http://www.visitscotland.com/ We live very near the sea and you can take boat trips and see seals and many birds. J K Rowling lives very near our home! http://www.buzzfeed.com/hilarywardle/edinburgh-is-the-best?bffbuk&s=mobile#29t5bvv
