Wee trip to Edinburgh
Edinburgh is easily one of my favourite cities, so I was pretty excited when some friends and I decided to beat the January blues and go.
First stop, accommodation. First question, New Town or Old Town? New Town is more cosmopolitan, with cocktail bars and restaurants on George Street, and shopping on Princes Street. Old town is the historic part of the city (massive Harry Potter vibes).
We decided to go for a traditional townhouse apartment in New Town (click link to have a nosey). It was in a great location, the host was very accommodating with a flexible check in. There was also free parking at the weekend, which was only 160 metres away. If you want to bag a good bargain then the end of January is definitely a good time, particularly in Edinburgh, as they've just had Hogmanay, so it tends to quieten down after that.
Due to driving up after work on Friday, we arrived pretty late. So it was time for pyjamas, prosecco and pizza!
The next day's main agenda was brunch. We completely over indulged ourselves in Badger and Co, not only was the food amazing, their brunch included a choice of four drinks per person (the closest you'll get to a bottomless brunch in Edinburgh, due to their laws).
Before we set off on our long drive home, we required a mean Sunday roast and Copper Blossom definitely delivered. We even went as far to say it was one of the best Sunday lunch we had ever had! Serving a generous platter of veg, gravy, Yorkshire puddings and a choice of three meats, we had all three!
Until next time, Edinburgh...
