We arrived in Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon so having dumped our cases at the hotel we set out on foot to explore this very walkable city. One of our favourite spots was on the corner of West Princess Street Gardens looking up at a spectacular view of the castle enjoying a glass of Pimm's on a nice sunny afternoon. That evening after a short 'siesta' we headed to Bistro Moderne on NW Circus Place, run by chef Mark Greenaway this french concept style restaurant is great value for money, the food is delicious, the service excellent and the ambience just spot on. Do give it a try if you can.

After a wonderful morning learning about the Castle's history we spent the afternoon enjoying the area around the Royal Mile where if you like Cashmere you will be in your element as there are a multitude of shops selling Cashmere products.

That evening we enjoyed a nice meal in The Atelier on Morrison Street, whilst not quite in the league of Bistro Moderne the food was very good so no real complaints. That bought our short break in Edinburgh to a close, one thing is for certain, we need to go back.
