I went to Edinburgh for the bank holiday weekend, and whilst wandering the Royal Mile between the castle and Holyrood Palace found the Toy museum.

Having two small kids I suggested we have a look, entry was free, and we were in no rush (however the real reason was to see if there was any VAM).

There were a couple of VAM and a Tommy Gunn. They were mislabelled, the TG described as VAM and vice a versa. The VAM were early hard hand figures, I couldn't tell if they had painted heads.

There was a storm trooper with his helmet on backwards and wearing a green beret cammo ascot, but cannot recall what the second figure was (either US or British infantry).

If you ever visit Edinburgh it is worth a quick look, they were not in great condition or displayed well, but it was nice to see them on display.

We did the usual tourist stuff. We stayed just out of the city and got the train in which the kids enjoyed.

We spent nearly a day at the castle, looked in the touristy shops, visited Holyrood Palace, went to Jenners department store (to the toy department), went to the Hard Rock cafe and went to Our Dynamic Earth.

On the way back south down the A1 we went to Lindisfarne and Bamburgh in Northumberland. Basically we did things that kept the kids entertained whilst havinga nice break.

In the Edinburgh Castle there is a Highlander regimental museum (the Camerons?) and you can see there, proudly displayed between real 1:1 memorabilia, the Argyll & Sutherland VAM figure  cheers

Funny you should say that. Seeing all of the uniforms on display in the castle inspired me to buy a VAM Argyll & Sutherland uniform which arrived yesterday.

It is a vintage one, not complete, just kilt, jacket and hat, and I am undecided wether to try and put the complete outfit together or create some kind of kitbash with the items (in my small collection of VAM I only have original outfits, no kit bashes or 40th stuff - yet). I have a couple of ideas, but have to do some research to see if they will resemble genuine uniforms.
