Presenter Country!

WE GOT 5 STARS!! and hiked Arthur’s Seat

Well, okay, all of us got 5 stars from the Scotsman, which is the paper that awards the Fringe First – but NOT all of us did the morn hike. The seat was beautiful, but I think far more excting was the 5-star review from Joyce McMillan, the head reviewer for the Scotsman.  She has […]
