Scotland in Spring: Edinburgh photo diary

If you have never visited Edinburgh and you fancy boarding a train to mooch around some of Scotland's most gorgeous pieces of architecture under silver skies and amidst chilly drizzles, before nipping somewhere dark and cosy for a nibble and a drink (or two), here are some small suggestions from my latest Scottish adventure...

Unlike St Giles' Cathedral which sits proudly amidst the Royal Mile, St Mary's Cathedral is hidden amongst some of Edinburgh's beautiful out-of-the-way townhouses, wherein it is somewhat easy to forget that you are in the North, as opposed to being in a street of apartments in Chelsea.

Whatever the weather, it is always worth a stroll (/hike) up to Castle Rock to look up at Edinburgh Castle and down the Royal Mile. And there is nothing better than following a wonder across the grounds with a stop to the neighbouring Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, bedecked with fairy lights on the patio, and sumptuously dark inside. Their lavender daquiri gin is tip-top.
