My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneI live an hour away from Scotland’s capital, and I’d like to think that I know it very well. But I was very impressed by Garry Fraser’s literary exploration of Edinburgh in this week’s issue (p36) and the many hidden gems the city has to offer. If you’re looking for a place for a summer break, then it’s the perfect location – and Garry agrees! Elsewhere, we’re spending a night in the cells too, but don’t worry, we’re not in trouble, we’re off on our holidays! Find out more on page 42.

What are your holiday plans for this year? Drop me a line and let me know. Enjoy the issue and have a great week.
