|Discovering a clue|
The clues were all lovingly typed out on a typewriter and dipped in tea (or whatever method Lilliputian used to make her clues look "olden" - tea is what I would have used), and hidden by Lilliputian in various ingenious locations.
The first clue mentioned a "battle of wits" so we set off on our intrepid adventure in the direction of Bruntsfield Links, where there is a giant chessboard. There amongst a pot with tulips was a beautiful red rose which on close inspection was made out of tissue paper and had a bag of chocolate eggs and toffee instead of roots.
However it turns out the godforsaken place was St Kentigern's Church. (I only learnt its name from googling it as I was writing this post.)
We then headed along the Union Canal in search of some entrapped trees in Harrison Park.

I have discovered the final clue in my purse while writing this so can quote it verbatim. It was found in a flag placed in a field and reads as follows:
"Admire the view and RIDE ON... this library ain't big enough for the both of us.Judging by the smell of this Lilliputian did in fact made her clues look old with coffee, not tea.
(tumbleweed rolls by)
In case, some of you many thousands of mostly imaginary readers, want to solve this clue themselves I have hidden the rest of this post. Although it may be difficult for anyone not familiar with Edinburgh, and who hasn't discovered this spot before.

Later everyone gathered outside eating barbequed burgers and grilled sausages just as it begun bucketing with torrential rain. The gazebo kept us dry(ish), until we decamped inside.
