Fly to Edinburgh

Why visit Edinburgh?

With its historic clout and cultural kudos, Scotland’s capital is a city for all seasons.

Local hotspot

Packed with great bars, cool eateries, Michelin-starred restaurants and more, Edinburgh’s northern district of Leith is a lifetime away from Irvine Welsh's depiction in 1990s hit “Trainspotting”.

You probably didn’t know

Rumour has it that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle based his character Sherlock Holmes on a professor at Edinburgh’s Royal College of Surgeons. Also, Edinburgh is the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature.

Things to do in Edinburgh

The Gardener’s Cottage

A daily changing menu is scrawled lovingly onto a blackboard and propped up outside The Gardener’s Cottage. Ingredients are sourced from local farmers, producers and foragers. Everything here, from the inventiveness of the dishes to the super-friendly service, produces its own magic of Edinburgh.

Aizle

Self-proclaimed “neo-bistro” Aizle likes to surprise, with diners offered only a list of curious ingredients as a clue to the five-course tasting menu to come. Style and substance abound.

VDeep

Flying in the face of the identikit curry house, VDeep marries craft beers and Indian food with some serious creative welly. Pork Cheek Vindaloo is just one, of many, reincarnations.

Union of Genius

When you fly to Edinburgh, do not miss that place. The humble bowl of soup is propelled to great things at Scotland’s first soup café, Union of Genius. Proof that wholesome flavours and a chunk of bread can make for a fine meal.

Stockbridge Market

If you visit Edinburgh on Sunday, visi the city’s most gentrified areas, Stockbridge Market is a swell of Asian flavours, stinky Scottish cheeses, and lush local brewers.

Timberyard

Once a costume store for the nearby Royal Lyceum Theatre, Timberyard’s industrial vibe belies a stylish hangout. A carefully crafted menu packed with flavour, locally sourced produce and a quirky cocktail list.

Panda & Sons

Sure, the speakeasy styling, quirky décor and barbershop entrance raise a smile, but it’s the true wonder of the drinks menu that really makes Panda & Sons a joy of Edinburgh. Devilishly designed and lovingly concocted, the cocktails are the stars here.

Roseleaf

As if its trademark vintage cocktails and lip-smackingly good gin and whisky menus didn’t suffice, Leith favourite Roseleaf has a top-notch menu and effortless charm to match for your vacations to Edinburgh.

The Hanging Bat

The Hanging Bat led the charge when the city’s craft beer revolution came calling, and it remains the go-to bar for British, cutting-edge brewers in Edinburgh. They do a mighty fine hot dog too.

Devil’s Advocate

Staying in Edinburgh, snuck away on Advocate’s Close, former Victorian pump house-cum-hip food and drink den Devil’s Advocate warms up its slick industrious look with a plentiful bar and a clientele that veers from happy after-workers to weekend moochers.

Joey D

A stalwart of the Edinburgh scene, Joey D’s clothes and accessories are born out of recycled vintage clothing and all manner of crazy materials. A one off.

The Red Door Gallery

Forget the tourist tat emporiums on the Royal Mile; local artists, illustrators and designers offer ample reason to splash the cash, at The Red Door Gallery. When you fly to Edinburgh, browse for prints, sketches, homewares, stationery and gifts.

Godiva

Godiva’s sea of vintage frocks and glam accessories is a joy for those who like to look back to be fashion forward.

Anteaques

An antiques haven-cum-tea shop Anteaques is a treasure of Edinburgh. Small but perfectly imagined, this is one for fans of a bygone era.

Totty Rocks

More than just a great name, indie womenswear label Totty Rocks offers quirky tailoring, with all products in the boutique designed and produced in Scotland.

Summerhall

The hottest new arrival on Edinburgh’s art scene, Summerhall’s multi-arts and workshop space uses all the quirks from its former life as a school of veterinary studies. The old dissection room regularly hosts contemporary exhibitions, music, theatre, dance and more.

Traverse Theatre

It started life in the 1960s as a theatre club in a deserted brothel. Fifty years later (and relocated), the Traverse Theatre (or the Trav to locals) is one of the most respected theatres in Scotland.

The National Museum of Scotland

From dinosaurs to future technologies, Space to Ancient Egypt – the National Museum of Scotland doesn’t do small. Interactive areas for kids (from toddlers up) make it perfect for rainy family days out. Better still, it’s free.
