My Edinburgh

Here you will find my very own recommendations in and around the City of Edinburgh.

I have chosen and shared each place that I truly think makes the City of Edinburgh as special as it is. I have tried to include a bit of everything from cosy little cafes, buzzing bars, where to go to dance the night away, where to rest your head after a long day of sightseeing and shopping, and where I love to go to find my inspirations and escape the hustle and bustle of this BEAUTIFUL City of EDINBURGH.
