We managed to visit a weaving and mill hall located at the corner. I was hypnotized by the weaving machines and to seal the memories of an interesting visit, bought a big 100% lambswool scarf ( Mcclaren Clan ) for 19.90 GBP that is woven in the premises.
Lunch was café food at Deacon's Café. Hubby and I had Scottish smoked salmon sandwiches, H , cheddar cheese sandwich, basically a heap of a mound of extremely creamy cheddar cheese held between 2 slices of bread. Tomato soup and carrot cake were similarly delicious ( 30 GBP ) .

We had an afternoon tea break at Coffee House located along High St. Compared to Deacon's Café, the carrot cake was moist and they enhanced the flavor by adding coconut cream in the cheese frosting. Sublime tasting and the coffee was full flavored as well.
There was still an hour or so of sunlight and we walked along High St again, checking out stores and taking in everything on this last night in Edinburgh. By 5pm, we were back in Travelodge, laden with many packs of Scottish shortbread and even a box of whisky.

Then it was back to pack up for an early departure the next morning.
