I came across this shoe tied to the fence next to the Saughton Mains allotment. To me it represents a real sense of community in the heart of the city. I really hope the owner and the shoe are reunited!
This allotment always taks me by surprise. It’s a reminder of how much green space there is in Edinburgh, and how so much of it is put to good use. There are around 30 allotment sites in Edinburgh. The majority are run by the council, but there are also a handful of independents.
