Art Gallery
“My favourite of all the Scottish Galleries. But then I am a modern art fan. There are two galleries here No 1 and No 2 literally opposite each other across a road you could easily spend a full day in each of them. Located in Edinburgh’s West End there is a gallery link bus from the national gallery on Princes Street( £1 charge each way). From the Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore sculpture in the garden setting to the Lichtenstein in the gallery this setting keeps on giving. Inspired curation provides a host of specialist exhibitions throughout the year. Currently a Paula Rego exhibition (spring 2020). You cant see everything on a short trip to Edinburgh but if you love art this is a must. Great cafe which is just as well as a bit of a walk to alternatives. ”

Park
“This is my top recommendation for visitors, particularly on short visits. It's like being on a movie set with its iconic, surprising buildings. Climb the Tower to get 360 degree views over the city, sea and countryside. It's the best place to get your bearings after arrival.”

Art Gallery
“The nearest gallery to the flat. Packed with interest in terms of biography in art. Aside from that the building itself is an absolute star. Short walk then across St Andrews Square to the Scottish National Gallery. 10/15 minute bus ride depending on traffic or 25/30 minute walk but uphill. ”

Park
“This is a fantastic space right down the road from our flat. (take a left out of the door and walk down the hill past the small roundabout, then up the hill slightly, keep an eye out for a small gate on the left, that will take you down into the gardens) It is a beautiful park in its own right, and also a great shortcut to Princes Street and beyond. It used to be my walk to work in the morning!”

“Fantastic pizza and you can either go and eat in their lovely restaurant, order it for delivery at home or, if you are at The Joker & The Thief on Leith Walk, order it and have it with your pint of Tennent's (they serve it up on a platter, and provide napkins etc....amazing!). The Vesuvio is my firm favourite!”
