This brings back memories of visting Edinburgh just before Christmas and getting stranded during a snow storm. People were running around putting newspapers under car tyres (tires?) for traction. I remember having to spend the rest of the day at Carfraemill until the road was clear enough to travel back home to Gordon. Fifty years later and I still haven't forgotten the experience -- thanks Tony for bringing back the memories. I hope you and your family had a good Christmas and New Year.
My boyfriend and I were very lucky to visit Edinburgh for the first time in December of 2019 and it is so heartbreaking to see the difference in what the city looked at that time compared to this video. I hope everyone is able to still enjoy Christmas with family and hold out hope that this can only get better. Merry Christmas to you and the family xx
Just watch Edinburgh thank you for doing this for us I live in Florida and I have family in England I miss then very much Edinburgh is where my heart is Thank you for everything you do God bless you and your wee family and the dogs you have a bonnie wee lassie take care and be safe
It is the same here on the others side of the pond. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I live in the state of Idaho in the Northwestern part of the United States. Our Covid19 numbers are rising, and there just isn't much joy I would normally see and feel during the holidays. I have two family members the are sick with Covid19. My sister in law and her dad whom I adore. None of us are getting together, & that makes me sad.
Merry Christmas Tony and the Family. Thank you for these video's, what a escape they are. I long for my return to Edinburgh, watching these videos just absolutely make me so happy as I know many of these places well and it brings back memories. When the pandemic is over and hopefully we get back to some sort of norm, A video on Edinburgh's music venues would be great. So many in the entertainment industry are struggling right now. Again thank you and Happy Holidays, Cheers.
Hello Broonfords! Just want to let you know that now, more than ever, we appreciate you taking the time to show us around Edinburgh. It is one of the few moments in our week that we look forward to. Walking about with you gives us hope that one day things will open up and we will be able to visit beautiful Scotland again!Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thank you Tony for your cheerful and upbeat videos throughout this difficult year. Hogmanay will most certainly be a subdued affair this year. Looking forward to a future return to Edinburgh in a post-pandemic world. From our home in Kentucky, health and peace to you and your family this Christmas season, and best wishes for a prosperous New Year!
I found myself getting upset watching the video. I love your videos especially the Christmas ones. I guess the contrast between this year and last year and the fact that I’ve been too emotional lately was what made me emotional. This has been a hard year! I pray next year will be better. Thank you for all the videos you make. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!!
Thanks for this lovely video Tony. This is the first year we have missed the Christmas Market in I don't know how many years so at least you have given us a glimpse of Edinburgh at Christmas. Thanks for another great year following Clan Broonford and hope you, Kirsten, little Lilian and of course your two little pooches have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy Hogmanay. Looking forward to seeing you videos in the New Year. Cheers! 🥃
It's been a strange year that's for sure....From the video's you did of the first lockdown....to my own personal visit back in July when i saw first hand, a quiet and subdued Edinburgh, to now, a still quiet Edinburgh at Christmas, one thing has stood out, your excellent videos, which never fail to give me that buzz when i see my favourite city.....and it's thanks to you that each video always captures this beautiful city, whether good or bad and makes me wish i was there once again. Your videos have given us more pleasure than you will ever know, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Clan Broonford is strong...we will get through this !! Edinburgh will be back....and back, stronger and better than ever...Merry Christmas Tony...and to the lovely Kirsten and baby Lillian. Enjoy Christmas with a well earned break, you've certainly earned it my friend. Clan Broonford Forever !!
This was a beautiful video Tony. All the sweeter that you did find some lights and made them really special. Loved the music too. It was sad and yet very sweet. Definitely set the mood. Great editing by you (or Kirsten). Thanks for sharing Christmas in Edinburgh. Merry Christmas to the Broonford Chieftan and his family.
Thank-you for the beautiful tour. People like you really help us get through the pandemic. I have an ongoing illness, so I'm inside a lot, so seeing the views you show us on your videos is so great for me to see. Thank-you so much for your generosity. We can be thankful for life and health. It's ok, even if a huge Christmas display would turn into a single candle, this year...it would actually have more meaning. In this tough year for businesses, to see any display...to see any attempt by the business owners is very wonderful. And...to pray for the people who've lost their businesses...and for those who've lost loved ones. God bless you, your wife, and your baby. A special family. Simple, yet wonderful love. You are blessed.
Of course it is different than what we are used to. And exactly there we could stop and look at the situation from a different point if view! We are too used to all this, - the hustling and bustling around the Christmas time, the thousands and thousands of lights that light up every city around the world..... well, hurray for all the creatures who have suffered from our light-pollution for so many years. Yes, of course it is very pretty to look at. But wouldn't less be just a festive and special? By all means, I don't want to be negative about all the overflow, - I'd rather see this situation as a chance for all humans to re-think and evaluate the list of things we truly need. I am sure, many will think about this time when all is normal again. Nevertheless, - thank you so much for taking us along, it was, as always, a treat! I wish you and your wee family a very wonderful and special Christmas, a Happy New Year and most of all: Health and Happiness! :) Greetings from Bavaria!
Even though Edinburgh is not all dressed as it typically us for the holiday, it's still stunning ❤️. I have friends that live and always share pictures of the Christmas Markets. You are so right when you say it's a shame as it that way all over. Maybe this year instead of the material things of Christmas we need to focus on the real reason for the season.Merry Christmas to you and your family and a very safe ,healthy and Happy New Year!
It's not officially Christmas until The Snowman advert comes on and The Dome put on their Christmas lights. This is a real shame to see Edinburgh like this but we'll eventually get through it. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes! Great video as always! :)
Dear Broonfords - thanks for all the great videos, keep them coming. Maby show us around in Leith, it's also a beautiful place.
But most importantly, yeah most importantly may you guys have a Marry Christmas and a Happy New year. 🇩🇰☀️🏴

This year is a reminder to never take the Christmas season for granted or regard it as a burden or obligation. Make it something relevant to you and enjoy it however you want.
This year is one for the ages, one we’ll look back on when times are better.
A merry little Christmas to all!
It’s sad not to see the Christmas market and the downplayed decorations. It will only make its return (hopefully next year) all the sweeter.
I went to see the lights at the Royal Botanic Gardens this week and it was spectacular. At least there are little bits of Christmas here and there. 😊
Wishing you and Kirsten a wonderful first Christmas with your darling girl.
As someone who was able to visit Edinburgh, several years ago, for the Christmas / Hogmanay festivities, I do find the lack of activities is disconcerting... no Big Wheel, or German market, no skating rink, etc. is sad enough, but it's the lack of the people that I found most noticeable. No crowds of shoppers, no one just wandering about, enjoying the atmosphere. I guess it's just how quiet the city seems to be. Hopefully next year we'll all see the return of the Edinburgh, that I have so enjoyed in both summer & winter. Merry Christmas Clan Broonford.
My husband and I love the Edinburgh german market at our first we found out how we felt about one & other sixteen years later to the day we are celebrating your 12th wedding anniversary ( my husband was taken to Frankfurt german market as kid his dad was stationed in germany)
This is so nostalgic for me!!!! For the past 2 years I've been to Edinburgh for Christmas. With the pandemic, I havent gone this year or seen my boyfriend that I go with for a few months now. It's so sad but I thank you for all your hard work on this video! Really made me feel at home.
