Our top picks in the local area

For families

Edinburgh Zoo is a fantastic day out for every single member of the family.  The main attraction at this zoo is the pair of Panda Bears currently on loan to the zoo, but there are many other delights to capture the attention of kids, both young and old.  This zoo is dedicated to wider conservation and education and the enthusiastic and friendly staff will happily talk to you about their charges.

For romance

The Water of Leith Walkway is a bracing walk that meanders alongside the river that rises in the Pentland Hills and empties in the spectacular Firth Of Forth.  On a cold and clear winters day this walk is perfection, especially of you pack a flask of hot chocolate to warm you up as you amble hand in hand along the lovely river side setting.

For culture

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is a joy both inside and out as the grounds are dotted with Henry Moore sculptures.  This exquisite gallery is a must on any culture vulture’s itinerary.

For shopping

Is geology simply a bunch of old, dusty rocks?  A trip to the stunning Mr Woods Fossils will soon put that theory to bed!  This lovely shop in Grassmarket is dedicated to all things mineral and fossil and even has a smattering of meteorites.  Every glass case and shelf is crammed with collectables and curios that suit every pocket. A true wonder.

For eating out

For great meat and fish then there is no better place to head to that the renowned Grain Store. With impressive tastes from venison, game, beef and a plethora of sea food, this restaurant has a menu that is very reasonably priced when you consider what quality food you are eating.

For nightlife

Traditionalists and lovers of real ale will be impressed by the Sheep’s Heid Inn, where there is always an impressive selection of beers and ales on tap, including several guest ones. One of the original and best pubs in the city, the beers are always well kept and the place warm, genuine and friendly.
