Today we decided to rectify this apparent discrimination by heading Leithwards, to Pilrig Park. Why Pilrig Park? Why not?! We needed to branch out and we knew this park existed, and that was good enough for me.

I took an immediate liking to Pilrig Park - there is an abundance of good sturdy shade trees, and enough variety in the terrain to keep things interesting. Although I noticed the detritus of the shadier side of Leith (beer bottles strewn near benches, the lingering smell of weed, one or two creepy looking men in tracksuits), the park still managed to effect a pleasant, welcoming vibe.

So there you have it, dear readers: In attempting to prove we weren't guilty of a bit of anti-Leith snobbery, we only succeeded in proving ourselves to be a bit unimaginative and lazy. And susceptible to burger envy. And still a little bit snobby.
