Hey there, I'm Colin - your friendly local host in Edinburgh! I'm a curious and easygoing guy who loves to explore new places and meet new people. What I really adore about Edinburgh is its rich history and stunning architecture, as well as its gorgeous natural surroundings - I could spend hours wandering through the parks and hills! When I'm not out and about, I enjoy sipping on some delicious whisky and discovering hidden gems throughout the city. As an expert in the West side and Central Edinburgh neighborhoods, I love sharing my knowledge of the area, especially when it comes to the fascinating history of the upper water of Leith and the best parks and outdoor spots to check out. Let's explore Edinburgh together!
