  1. Looks lovely! Although, every time I’ve been to Edinburgh it’s been the summer and we’ve had really hot days, and being a winter bod it really makes me want to come down when it’s chillier. I think we’ll have to come down at Christmas and go to the markets. My daughter went one year with the school and couldn’t say enough nice things about the festive atmosphere.

      1. Edinburgh has differently-themed festivals throughout the year, but the main ones are in the summer – the International arts festival, the fring and the book festival – all of which combine to make for a summer of amazing fun in what is already a beautiful city!

  2. I love Edinburgh in August! But then I love Edinburgh in June, July & September. And I am certain that there are many festivities in all of the months. I would love to be there for Hogmanay!! You will notice that I have used “love” three times.

    1. I am sure you would indeed love it at Hogmanay – such a fun time. But it is wonderful to have your visits any time of year – very much looking forward to the next one! X
