Welcome to Edinburgh, the vibrant, vivid and inspiring capital city of Scotland. Home of; Haggis, world class festivals, whiskey and numerous myths and legends, Edinburgh offers a wonderful weekend trip away for families, young couples and students looking for a mini holiday away not too far from home (especially those living in the UK). Vivid architecture and beautiful scenery defines Edinburgh’s landscape, such as the famous Arthur’s Seat, a large hill top peak, which is only a stone’s throw and a mini climb away from the city centre. Additionally Edinburgh Castle is a must see for visitors who are passing through, where one is able to experience the majestic views over the city, hear cannons being fired and view the beauty of the precious crown jewels of Scotland.

Unfortunately we were only there for the weekend, (am planning on going back again at the end of the month!) so there were alot of things that we missed out on seeing, such as the Scottish Highlands, the galleries, Royal Botanical Gardens and so much more. But I managed to see enough to know that I definitely want to come back again and explore this magical city.

Would love to hear if you have any recommended; places, things to do, eat or see when in Edinburgh. I feel like I barely scratched the surface of this amazing place and I’m sure many of you have some great places to share.

And this lovely lady sitting next to me on the castle walls is the adorable Allison, my self confessed selfie partner in crime. Both of us have an extreme enthusiasm for not just photos but; being in photos, posing with things and taking photos, making sure we take a photo of or with everything and having the casual selfie photo here and there. Love it!

      Was going to write a list, but realized I didn’t go to as many places as I would have liked!

    Edinburgh is wonderful, but best seen with the Fringe Festival. You should definitely go back for that if possible!

      Fringe looks wonderful!I just looked at the official website, https://www.edfringe.com/ and it looks fabulous!

      Unfortunately I will be leaving the UK in July, so I just miss it, but it definitely looks like something I have to come back and experience.
      Thankyou so much for the amazing suggestion Hannah! xo
