Last week we travelled up to Edinburgh in Scotland, for a long weekend mini break, to celebrate Megs birthday. It was a long drive, but well worth it when we finally arrived ! easily one of the hilliest places we’ve ever been, definitely be prepared for a workout! Edinburgh is quite captivating from the moment you arrive, sporting old historical buildings, and vast areas of green, the city is a definite treat to the eye !!
If you’re the type of traveller who enjoys a day out exploring the wonders of a quaint, and adorable city, then you’ll love Edinburgh. Filled with vibrant bars, and eerie side streets, it brings both the authenticity, and the party !
Bars and Pubs to check out for a drink (or two):
52 Canoes Tiki Den
Frankenstien and Beer Keller
Panda & Sons
The Library Bar
Bars in and around Potterrow are a must !
Civerinos/ Civerinos slice (we like italian food !)
Things to do in Edinburgh:
