If you’re searching for a taste of something a bit unusual, maybe even something a bit weird, then you’ve come to the right place with Edinburgh. Even though it’s only small (or wee, as we say here), my city definitely packs a punch when it comes to finding things that are a bit different. There are more than enough unique things to do in Edinburgh, as well as an absolute boat load of activities that are bound to give you that unconventional experience that you’re so desperately looking for. I’ve lived here for seven years now but even a kid I was always visiting all of the time, so I’ve got a fair bit of experience when it comes to Edinburgh off the beaten track. I’ve probably walked down every medieval street and discovered every nook and cranny that there is to discover, so you can trust me to uncover some wee gems with you today. If you’ve already seen all of the major sights, then it should be time for you to really explore the city! This is my list of unusual things to do in Edinburgh that aren’t in your guidebook.
