A Weekend in Edinburgh

Back at the beginning of October I had a quick trip up to Edinburgh for a couple of days to visit a good friend. This would be the furthest inland I had been to Scotland and I planned to make the most of the trip.

The plan was to catch up and have cocktails. It was the Edinburgh Cocktail Festival the weekend I was up, meaning that if you had a wristband you could get a different discount cocktail at each bar.


Every bar had made a signature cocktail for the weekend long event and this was the one that you got at discount.
It was a great way to experience the different bars and try some unusual drinks. Most were great however the one place had run out of their signature drink by 8pm on the Saturday evening which was abit insane.
The highlight was definitely the Sky Bar which is only open for so many days a month. It was open specially for this event and while it was far too busy to get a drink the view of Edinburgh was fantastic!

The next day revolved around the sight seeing of Edinburgh, we started the day off at a farmer's market which had some delicious smelling food and some wonderful handmade products.
We then headed into the centre and towards the royal mile - the hub of all the sites to see.

First we wandered down to Holyrood House nipping into gift shops and trying different varieties of shortbread on the way.
After this we headed back up to see the castle and admire the view.

Finally we headed to the Harry Potter store located on the street that supposedly inspired Diagon Alley. The potter fan in me was extremely excited.

That wrapped up a fantastic short weekend in Edinburgh.

Overall the city was so beautiful and full of culture. I would love to visit again for a longer period.
