Meet the correspondents: EDINBURGH > Stuart Kerr

"Drawing in Scotland can be cold. Apart from that, it's a great way to really get to know a city and it's people — hearing fragments of conversations and taking in how the architecture was stuck together. I almost always use a 0.4 pilot Hitec-C in a moleskine. Having lived in Osaka for 3 years where I rekindled the love for drawing and got infatuated with overpasses, Edinburgh's gothic streets are a dramatic departure."

Heard Edinburgh is a wonderful place but it's so hard to make it out of London. But yours is a top city on my list to visit!

it's a lovely place - yes - the train from london is equally good - the east coast line has an old dining car with fabric lampshades and curtains!

I visited Edinburgh in 2005 and it made a big impression of me, the views from the hill with the monuments (Calton Hill?) looking down on Edinburgh is stunning. Edinburgh is a beautiful, atmospheric place. It wasn't even that cold when I visited!
