Timberyard is in a class of its own. It is an incredible eatery with all organic produce and mostly home grown in their own on-site vegetable and herb garden. The produce is seasonal so the menu varies, but its location in a converted timber warehouse is what makes it stand out. A meal here is pricey though, will set you back around £120 for two people so it is probably to be reserved for special occasions.

This is a great wee restaurant if you're in the area. It started off as a pop up restaurant during the festival, and was so successful, it now operates year-round. Just turn up and get seated at one of the benches (it's not possible to get a private table or to book in advance), and choose from a great range of authentic Thai street food at very reasonable prices.

Our first floor restaurant can be found in The Rutland Hotel at Edinburgh’s West End and boasts enviable views of Edinburgh Castle.

With a prohibition-style era setting, this small space has a cocktail bar, an area with 6-7 restruant tables serving fantastic tapas-style dishes as well as flavoursome mains and on Fridays and Saturdays a small dance floor with a DJ.

This restaurant is fantastic. The service is excellent and the food is amazing. Given the quality of the food, the pricing is very reasonable. Probably best to book in advance is it was busy. It has a nice atmosphere and the biggest problem is what to choose from the menu. The scallops to start were amazing and the surf and turf is really nice. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The 117 mile long Fife Coastal Path is one of Scotland's great long distance paths. The central section between Leven and St Andrews follows the East Neuk coastline and can be walked in short sections of between 3 and 10 miles, making it good for younger or less experienced walkers. The hourly coastal bus service means that you can easily find a way to your start point. Walking from village to village from Elie to St Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther, Cellardyke and Crail provides plenty of choice to combine walking with stops for picnics or at the local cafes and restaurants en route.

Beautiful woodland with a river running through surrounding the 18th century 'Hermitage of Braid' House. The area was part of the estate centered on the house. Blackford Hill with the Royal Observatory buildings is located to the north of the Hermitage of Braid. The summit of Blackford Hill is the location of a prehistoric hillfort and provides fine views of the city and all surrounding areas.

One of the 7stanes and fantastic day out for Mountain biking enthusiasts. Trails to suit all abilities and also there is a good skills loop to practice on before hitting the trails. Dont have a bike? There is a bike hire shop at the bottom of the hill - rental includes helmet. Innerleithen which is about a 10 minute drive away offers more trails but these are not for the faint hearted!

Princes Street Gardens is a public park in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. The Gardens were created in two phases in the 1770s and 1820s following the long draining of the Nor Loch and building of the New Town, beginning in the 1760s. The loch, situated on the north side of the town, was originally an artificial creation forming part of its medieval defences and made expansion northwards difficult. The water was habitually polluted from sewage draining downhill from the Old Town. In 1846 the railway was built in the valley to connect the Edinburgh-Glasgow line at Haymarket with the new northern terminus of the North British line from Berwick-upon-Tweed.

At 820 ft, Arthur's Seat is the highest point in the 640-acre Holyrood Park. The spectacular sightseeing views from the top encompass the whole city all the way to the mouth of the Forth. (The easiest way up is from the park's Dunsapie Loch.) Also an easy climb are the dramatic Salisbury Crags, a series of 151 ft cliffs adjacent to Arthur's Seat. Other features in this huge park are the ancient cultivation terraces - some of the earliest and best-preserved examples of ancient farming practices in Scotland, and the picturesque ruins of the medieval St Anthony's Chapel.

City crowds getting a bit much? Be like generations of Edinburgh day-trippers: jump on the bus and head for Portobello Beach. There might not be donkey rides any more, but ’Porty’ still retains considerable old-fashioned seaside charms. It has a mile of sand, a promenade, sailing club, kite flying, blokarting (sand yachting), kite-surfing and clean water for paddling and safe swimming (no lifeguards). Bored with the beach? Close by you will find ice-cream parlours, sweetie shops, amusement arcades, family-friendly cafés and pubs. Try the Beach House Café, right on the promenade, before indulging in a Turkish Bath (£7.20) at the Portobello Swim Centre further down the beach.

Arthurs Seat and Salisbury Crags are natural rock formations in Edinburgh's Holyrood Park. The park is probably the most astonishing urban park in the UK and not only because it is ideally suited for a wide range of activities but because it's one of the best vantage points in Edinburgh. The views from Salisbury Crags and the top of Arthur's Seat are extraordinary. You get a sweeping view of Edinburgh's Old Town skyline -- the Hub, St Giles' cathedral, the Royal Bank of Scotland building, the Balmoral clock tower, Calton Hill and of course, Edinburgh Castle. Closer at hand you have a view of the new Scottish Parliament and also a view down Holyrood Palace and Abbey.

With just a short boat ride away from the Forth Bridges you can take a day trip to Inchcolm Island and visit the ruins of its 12th century Augustinian Abbey. The lush green island is a breath of fresh air, especially for those who have been trapped within the city limits a little too long, and on a sunny day you won’t believe you’re less than 20 miles away from Princes Street.

If you love our furry friends at Edinburgh Zoo but have grown tired of elbowing kids out of the way in order to observe them through glass, perhaps it’s time to consider investing in a personalised keeper experience. For a fairly substantial amount of money you can go behind the scenes at the zoo for a day and learn how to look after the various birds and beasts that live there. For slightly less cash you can experience a ‘magic moment’ (otherwise known as half an hour) getting to know a particular animal.

One of Piotr and I's favourites! A beautiful cocktail bar and restaurant at the heart of the city. Great decor and architecture. They serve tasty lunch and dinner menus that do not break the bank.
Lovely friendly pub/restaurant directly overlooking the Firth of Forth. Good beers, good food (for fish, the "catch of the day" can be really good), frequent live music, lovely sunsets. Advance booking recommended if planning to eat.

This is a charming french inspired bar with such plentiful portions of cheese, meat, bread and pate. They offer up wine, cheese and meat platters, with home-made pates like wild boar and venison. And they do it very well indeed.

Some don't even notice this place exists. It's hidden downstairs through a set of doors disguised as a bookshelf and opens into a speak-easy style cocktail bar with a great array of interesting cocktails. The mojito is the most original take on the drink I've ever tried and the birdcage is a smoked cocktail that is both delicious and a bit of a fun spectacle.

At the end of a long walk, a short cycle, or a 30-minute bus ride round the back of Arthur's Seat is the village of Duddingston and its deservedly famous Sheep Heid Inn. It is said to have been established in 1360 – which would make it the oldest pub in Scotland. Mary Queen of Scots was apparently a regular patron, as was her son James VI, who gave the landlord a ram's head snuff box – hence the name and the sheep heids on the walls. There's a beer garden, a conservatory area and, most exciting of all, a 19th-century skittle alley, which can be hired for the evening.

The Cambridge Bar is a free house specialising in craft beers & ales and gourmet homemade burgers. Located on a quiet side street in the bustling city centre, the pub offers the best of both worlds. We’re a truly independent pub, which gives us the freedom to offer the food & drink we think you’ll enjoy. We’re mainly known for three things: our burgers, our beers, and showing sport. You can be sure to find not only rugby and football on our screens, but a whole range of sport. Our LED projector really shines on a 92” (2.3m) screen. However, we keep the music playing and the big screen folded away unless there’s a big fixture on.

The Dean Village is a tranquil historic village on the Water of Leith, only five minutes walk from Princes Street. In the past the village was the centre of the milling of water mills and the remnants of the industry can still be seen today. Look out for mill stones and carved stone plaques with baked bread and pies. The most striking building in the Dean Village is Well Court, recently restored with the help of Edinburgh World Heritage. Built in the 1880s as model housing for local workers, it adds to the picturesque charm of the area. A short walk from the village is the Dean Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art.

Consecrated in 1243, St Giles Cathedral is Edinburgh's principal church. The 161 ft central tower with its eight arched buttresses forms a huge crown (the Crown Steeple) and is a favorite backdrop for photos. Interior highlights include memorials to the dead of WWI, lovely stained glass windows, and a statue of John Knox, leader of the Protestant Reformation (his former home, 45 High St, is close by and contains a museum and related artifacts). The Thistle Chapel is known for its marvelous oak carvings, heraldic emblems and seals of the "Knights of the Thistle" (Scotland's oldest order of knights). Sir Robert Lorimer designed the chapel in 1911, and it is a superb example of modern Gothic.

For anyone who wants to learn more about the darker side of Edinburgh's historic old town - come and see what lies beneath the City. This is an underground guided tour, underneath the Royal Mile. It took its name from one Mary King, daughter of advocate Alexander King, who in the 17th century had owned several properties within the close. The close was partially demolished and buried under the Royal Exchange, and later being closed to the public for many years, the complex became shrouded in myths and urban legends; tales of ghosts and murders, and myths of plague victims.

This hill provides great views over Edinburgh without too strenuous a hike to the top. Calton Hill is one of Edinburgh's main hills, set right in the city centre. It is unmistakable with its Athenian acropolis poking above the skyline. The acropolis is in fact an unfinished monument - originally called the "National Monument". Initiated in 1816, a year after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo, it was meant to be a replica of the Parthenon in Athens, as a memorial to those who had died in the Napoleonic Wars.

Sitting on top of an extinct volcano, the Castle dominates the city and is home to Scotland's Crown Jewels. Every day at 13.00 hrs a gun is fired from the ramparts. Parts of the current building date from the 16th century, although there has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the 12th century. The Military Tattoo takes place on the Castle Esplanade each summer and, to conclude the International Festival, the fireworks display to which the Castle forms the backdrop, is breathtaking.
