I love living in the Borders, but I do get excited every time I go back to our capital city. It's so different from the rural area I live in, with the fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants, hotels and activities and culture.
South Team is the team to support! I am told it has the best manager! Please go to the website www.Doddieaid.com to sign up. There's still time. All support is good support.
All fundraising ideas are good ideas. We've had a huge variety of ideas from selling toast at break time in a school, to selling sheep and cattle at the market, to cycling from Twickenham to Murrayfield in two days, along with rowing the Atlantic (3,000 miles!). Who knows what the next great idea will be! We are open to offers!
Massive. There's nothing greater than celebrating a win in Edinburgh – and so many great places to do it!
Definitely, it's the people. It's such a diverse, exciting city with such a beautiful backdrop, steeped in history. What more could you want?
Best place to drink in Edinburgh? What a great choice there is! I love the Grassmarket area, especially the Cold Town House - they have a great lager there, called Doddie's Beir – and the Beehive. Waiting for the train, Brewhemia is a favourite. In my youth I was often found in the Golf Tavern.
Best view of the city? The view of Murrayfield from the tram stop.
Best hidden gem in the city? It's not that hidden, but the train to the Borders has been amazing – great for my calorie intake!
