Great idea.  April 25 or May 11-12 in Edinburgh would be good for me. On holiday in between those dates a lon long way away.

We're in Edinburgh so could possibly meet you if you are coming to town one day. Busy 28/29 April and 8-10 May but otherwise should be around.

May 11 is certainly a possibility, any time before 4.00pm. Any other locals interested in a central Edinburgh Blipmeet? I wonder whether anyone looks much at these threads. Maybe best to suggest on blips.

I'd be quite happy to meet up on May 11 in Edinburgh. I did post in my own Blip journal and in the Facebook group Blipfoto Friends about a blipmeet too, so I'll write there again to see if anyone who replied is able to meet up then too and will work out something on where to meet. I think the Science Festival may still be running then? I'll let you know as soon as possible :-)

No, sorry the Science Festival has finished (only during the Easter holidays).  But somewhere like NMS might be a good place to meet.

Yes, I was just looking at the National Museum of Scotland (and I have never been there before). Apparently if we do have a meet there we shouldn't forget to get up on the roof for the views !

I think I'd probably need the 12th of May to deal with last minute things and pack everything again, Dave, we leave the next morning.

11th May looks OK for me - and the NMS is a great place to visit. Meeting up would be easy to arrange - in the centre of the main space shown in this pal's blip, for example! https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/3813529 

Would you like to suggest a time, Ingeborg? Once we have a date/time we can spread the word to some other local blippers who don't look at these forums.

OK, sorry it took me a while, I still have to figure out how to get to Edinburgh should my husband need to be elsewhere. Let's have a meet at the National Museum of Scotland on Thursday May 11 at 11 am, at the entrance hall. We can have a tour of the museum and see if there's a good place to have lunch there or near. We can recognise each other by wearing our cameras ;-)

Let me know if you're coming, looking forward to meeting you,

I'll be there. I presume by entrance hall you mean the grand gallery, which is actually one level up from where you enter the museum.

Centre of the grand gallery is fine with me , sorry, I didn't realise that the entrance wasn't there, as I have never been there yet, to my shame (I did live in Perthshire for 6 years and have been visiting Scotland yearly since 1986)

I can be there at 11:00 on the 11th. You might not spot my wee camera but I'll try to remember to wear my vintage Blipfoto.com T-shirt! Somewhere around that decorative fountain in the middle....            https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/3813529 

I'll put a link to this on my blip journal and alert a few local blippers, as I don't think many of them think to check out these threads anymore.

Great, I've also posted this in the Blipfoto Friends group on Facebook, and I will let any befriended Scottish Blippers know too :-)
