Auld Reekie, Edina, Embra – call it what you will, Edinburgh has been known by many a moniker over the last few centuries. An established city steeped in history, Scotland’s capital is recognised for its stunning architecture, world famous festivals and hospitable locals. It is a vibrant city with a blend of iconic landmarks, art & culture and lends itself to an exciting weekend away for any visitor.

I don’t need any excuse to sojourn in Scotland. I have visited Edinburgh annually since working there 12 years ago. It’s a city I could never tire of – the sound of the bagpipes still brings a tear to my eye as does the biting wind and a double Hendricks Gin. I love a man in a kilt, ginger hair, tablet, tweed & all things Tunnocks. Now when I visit, I am warmly nestled around the firesides of dear friends so perhaps don’t spend as much time wandering around the Old or the New Town streets as a tourist might. However, this is what I would recommend to the first time visitor.

Sometimes you need to inject a little bit of spice into your relationships to keep the love burning hot. No, we’re not talking about your significant other, but your hometown. We can all fall into a rut of heading for the same cafes, the same bars, and the same venues. Give our recommendations a try to start seeing your city through a new set of eyes.

1) Stay in a concept hotel Book yourself in a hip hotel in a part of town you’re not familiar with. Plenty of hotels have wacky rooms, fun art, and cool concepts, all of which are normally invisible to locals. For bonus points, don’t tell the concierge where you live… see where their recommendations take you!
