A couple of days ago, I used the NCP Castle Terrace Park, in Edinburgh. Some changes since my last visit. No more tickets; now you collect a plastic chip, so you have no visible evidence of the time you checked in. There are no signs advising users of charges, either at the entrance or by the pay-points. There must be one somewhere but it is not obvious. When I put my chip in the slot on leaving, the screen told me that I had been there for one hour nine minutes and it was going to cost £5.90; run of the mill for central London, where NCP is based, but in Edinburgh, well, bugger that for a game of soldiers. A complaint has been lodged with Trading Standards; let’s see what happens.

    I agree but there are some bargains to be had out there! Just got your new book at the Gyle for £9.99!! I used to pay £16.99 for a Skinner hardback!
