Edinburgh's Wild West

A while ago, I read about Edinburgh's secret Wild West on the Conversation Pieces blog, and had forgotten about it until @thevintagedoc mentioned it on Twitter. Today I decided to find it for myself! It's off Springfield Valley Gardens, just next to a garage, through an entrance that looks as though it leads to another garage. And it truly is like the wild west! Most bizarre! A wonderful secret piece of Edinburgh that is worth exploring, then you can go and have a cup of tea and a cake in one of the many cafes in Morningside or browse the many good quality second hand shops in the area.

Well found and indeed well done for reminding me that this exists. I have been here in my filmstar days - I once walked across the dancefloor in Rebus (it was set up in a building just of this little bit of the wild west).

Both dislocating and wonderful to learn such a place exists a stone's throw away. I will definitely go, one of these days!
