City Guide to Edinburgh, Scotland

We flew to Edinburgh following our trip to London (see here for our London Itinerary), and it was absolutely adorable. We stayed at a flat in The Grange neighborhood which was lovely, but I would also recommend the Stockbridge neighborhood.

Here are my favorite things we did that I would recommend to others who are visiting:


  • The Rabbit Hole

  • The Chaumer

  • Cotê

  • 63rd + 1st

  • Badger & Co

  • The Scran and Scalle

  • Bross Bagels


  • The Milkman | Their blueberry knots are also sooo delicious!

  • Fortitude Coffee

I would recommend spending two days in Edinburgh, and here's what I would do:

Day One:

  • Coffee & blueberry knots at The Milkman

  • Walk along Princes Street Gardens, Scott Monument, and Ross Fountain to Edinburgh Castle

  • Tour Edinburgh Castle

  • Lunch at Badger & Co.

  • Walk along the Royal Mile

  • There are SO many shops and places to see but it's all very close together and easy to walk from one spot to another.

  • Ex: Cockburn Street, Mary King's Close, Dunbar's Close, Victoria Street, Armchair Books,

  • Dinner at The Rabbit Hole

Day Two:

  • Grab breakfast at Bross Bagels in Stockbridge

  • Fortitude Coffee in Stockbridge is great for coffee

  • Bop into Golden Hare Books (right next-door to Bross Bagels)

  • Walk down Circus Lane

  • Water of Leith Walkway

  • Walk to Dean Village

  • Lunch at The Chaumer

  • Hike to Arthur's Seat

  • Shop/bop around

  • Return to the flat to freshen up

  • Dinner & drinks at The Salisbury Arms
