Our walking group outing last week began with a bus journey to the capital followed by an energetic walk from the bus station to Inverleith House.
The house is set in the grounds of the Botanic Gardens and is currently showing Plant Scenery of the World, a varied exhibition of contemporary and historical works looking at the history of botanical collections and display.
A hike back into the city led to Fruitmarket Gallery to see an exhibition by Brazilian artist Jac Leirner, a wonderful display of works made from everyday materials collected by the artist.
