What to See in Edinburgh: Photo Diary

What to see in Ediburgh on a short stay weekend

Edinburgh is a beautiful city; it’s a surreal surrounding when you’re so close to the national fortress that is Edinburgh Castle. Built on an extinct volcano, the castle dominates the evening skyline as it lights up in all its regality and is an instantly recognised attraction when you visit the city. But the castle is just a part of what’s in store and you’ll never to be stuck wondering what to see in Edinburgh or where to go.  

If you are wondering what to see in Edinburgh and what attractions to plan into your schedule, take a look at my photo diary for some inspiration and ideas. I enjoyed a long weekend filled with long walks and castle history, tartan fashion and life’s most spectacular illusions, delicious cocktails and traditional haggis, breath-taking architecture and yummy morning grub overlooking Grassmarket. 

What to See in Edinburgh: Photo Inspiration

I hope my photos inspire you in deciding what to see in Edinburgh and where to go. Staying in midst of pubs in the Grassmarket area, we spent most of the weekend on foot (my favourite way to travel) and if you want to explore the city’s true beauty, make sure you pack some comfortable footwear. 

Here are the pretty pics from my recent weekend break. Take a look before you decide what to see in Edinburgh when you visit…

  1. Ooh, if I once get to visit Scotland, I’ll go to all the pubs, not only in Edinburgh, but in the whole country… 😀 And try all the drkins and food they have. :) My favorite from your post is The Beehive, for it is so old and The Last Drop, because of the ghost they have – though it might only appear after the 3rd glass of whiskey. 😛

  2. Love Edinburgh! And LOVE your website Mags! Never new you were such a talented girl. Make sure you go back Christmas like I said, the place is amazing. x
