48 hours in Edinburgh

48 heures à Edimbourg

Just two days to Edinburgh and you are wondering what to do and what to see? Here are some ideas, I hope you will find your happiness. If you can stay more it would still not be worse because the city is rich of things to see 🙂

To have an overview, I recommend you to start with Calton Hill.

Calton Hill, Public Park

A few minutes from the city center, Calton Hill rises above Edinburgh. Don’t worry, the climb is easy. You take a small path, which I’m sure at this time of the year, must smell like hazelnut. From there, the view on the city is splendid and it will certainly help you to find your way.

At the top of the hill you will find the unfinished Acropolis (due to lack of funding). This is Athens’ touch.

If you are brave, walk down to the trendy district of StockBridge.

There, after this great walk you will be hungry :p. So go have lunch at the gastro pub Raeburn. I enjoyed a sunday roast (a Sunday roast) and a sticky toffee pudding. So good.

Then take a tour of the Stockbridge Market.

It is small but quite charming.

Then you can take the path along the Dean River to Dean Village, it’s really nice. You will only have to go to dinner, you will have plenty of it 🙂

The next day:

Go have a look on the very famous Greyfriars bobby pub. I let you read the story of this incredible dog (click).

If you are a fan ofHarry PotterIf you are a fan of Harry Potter 8783, go to the cemetery just behind it to see the grave of Thomas Riddell (the Tom Jedusor of the French translation, that is to say the real name of Voldemort). Don’t miss The Elephant House where JK Rowling wrote the beginning of the adventures of the famous wizard.

There is still plenty to do: shopping (cashmere but also Primark), the Castle, the Scotch Whisky Experience to discover how whisky is made, have a drink in a pub etc.

Useful info of the day: Edinburgh is pronounced Edimbrrrra in English.

To know everything, a website : Visit Scotland

Enjoy !

They’re not the only ones.
