The yearly Edinburgh Fringe Fest is not for the faint of heart. No matter how much people try to ‘pace themselves’ on day one, inevitably most will reach the end of the line wiped out beyond belief. But in a good way, of course! The largest art celebration on the planet may be a colossal handful even if tackled with military style precision, yet the rewards of attending this absolutely mind-blowing, excessively fun festival is not to be dismissed. The only bummer about going home with the mother-of-all-hangovers is the fact that most only remember some of it.

Top Tips on Surviving the Edinburgh Festival

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.
