Inside for winter
The older blocks of flats in Edinburgh have a basement floor reached by a stone staircase from the street. Estate agents call them 'garden flats', because they most often have a back door which opens straight out onto a garden, sometimes a private garden, and it sounds better than 'basement'. Strolling along a street peeking into these basement areas and the interior of the flat is a great diversion - I'm sure I'm not the only Edinburgher who enjoys this. Here's one I came across where the owner is well prepared for winter weather - the garden gnomes have been tempted indoors, but are still keeping watch on their property.
