Although it’s the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh has never been considered a city by the locals, it’s just our big town. Compact, with dense winding streets featuring historic landmarks and architecture of all ages, there’s so much to explore. I was born in the borders and the city has always been my home town, and I love discovering new things about where I now live. One of my favourite Edinburgh activities is discovering weird and wonderful facts, and my city has so many of them! My love of architecture and history has taken me all over the city, so I’ve rounded up the top 10 things to do in Edinburgh, so you can uncover the hidden gems most visitors miss.
