As quite a few Bloggy persons have been in Edinburgh over the last few weeks for the Edinburgh Festival, I thought I would show you some photos of a typical Scottish tenement flat, although this one was a tip as it is student accomadation and my son was moving out at the end of last term, also it hasn't been particularly looked after and updated.
Old tenement blocks in a lot of the Scottish cities are build in this mellow stone. They tend to have high ceilings and large windows which makes them cold in winter (Scottish winters are the coldest in the UK)
The internal hallway
Part of the internal hall
The high ceiling in would would have been the sitting room.
What would have been the sitting room but now a bedroom, look at that large bedroom.
The landing and staircase leading to the flat.
This is the second old tenement flat SofM has lived in whilst living in Edinburgh. This coming year he is going to be living in a brand new flat with all mod cons which will lovely for him but the disadvantage is that he will have to keep it much cleaner - lol. A lot of student accomadation with private landlords is grotty - to say the least!
