oh, and thereäs a whole load of the rest of the uk available for viewing now. just zoom out and drag the yellow man over the map to see which areas turn blue.

Thanks Milk that is fantastic! I just 'walked' from Bristo place to Grassmarket and Candlerow and will go for a further stroll tomorrow. WHAT is with all that construction! I enjoyed 'dropping' the little man to see where I would be, recognizing things as it came into focus.

awesome! almost like being there... pogo used to have one of these set up for the inside of forest (westport i think): would be cool to have a virtual tour of the interior of bristo...?

apparently there were at least two cars doing edinburgh - just spotted another in the images while trying to check out the castle esplanade (they didn't go up there, missing a trick imo)

judging from this one, it took them a few weeks to complete the job, though they still managed to miss out most of north bridge and other places
