Good, affordable Edinburgh restaurants
Friendly Italian restaraunt that's been here since I was a girl! Started out a simple cafe, now it has a great range of delicious authentic Italian meals. Indoor seating very comfortable. Outdoor sitting on Leith Walk busy but with big umbrellas to ward of rain or sun. Great service, really friendly staff.

Delicious range of Middle Eastern food. You can eat indoors, or if the weather's nice I highly recommend asking to sit on the terrace outside. You'll have great views of Edinburgh.

Excellent, gourmet Vegetarian food in a nice atmosphere. A must-visit for foodie veggies! David Bann's is a little bit more pricy (average main meal costs £15 per person) but it's tasty imaginative food.

One of my favourite restaurants, though it's a rare visit for me as it's pricy! The Witchery by the Castle. (top of the Royal Mile) has a wonderful atmosphere whether it’s winter or summer. If you want a special night out with a sense of Edinburgh history and atmosphere this is a great choice. It’s right next to Edinburgh Castle, the food is excellent and the staff are great. A two-course lunch is about £25. Dinner about £30 per main meal.

Beautiful Walks in the City
For nature lovers and walkers Arthur’s Seat is perfect. It's just 5 mins walk to the park from my flat. The main summit is usually quite busy, but much of the hill is relatively quiet. There’s a lovely view across Edinburgh from the hill. You can also walk across the hill to Duddingston Village on the other side, next to Duddingston Loch which is always teeming with geese and a few swans. You’ll find the Sheep’s Heid Inn here – one of Edinburgh’s oldest pubs, which has an excellent bar, restaurant upstairs and beer garden.

Walk, or get the bus, to Stockbridge, just 10 mins walk off Prince Street. From the end of Saunder's Street you'll see a bridge, walk through and carry on as far as you like along the water of Leith. This is one of Edinburgh's most pretty spots. Dean Village is very picturesque and it's just 5 mins walk up the river.

Calton Hill is just ten minutes walk from my flat. If you're feeling fit walk up the hill to see the classic view of Edinburgh along Princes Street. You can visit the observatory and gallery at the top of the hill, and there's a little cafe. (Not recommended after dark when Calton Hill can get a bit wild!)

You can easily spend an entire day at Edinburgh's Botanic Gardens. Extensive varied gardens that are lovely all year round, huge greenhouses, two cafes. No dogs allowed, but this is a great place to take your kids and it's free.
