Hey there! I'm Sandra, your friendly local host here in enchanting Edinburgh. What truly captivates me about Edinburgh is the blend of history and nature – from the mystical Carlton Hill to the serene Meadows, this city is a treasure trove of wonders. One of my greatest joys is delving into the diverse culinary scene this city has to offer. I love exploring, whether it's discovering hidden gems in old bookstores and indulging in a cozy read at the National Library's café, there's always something new to uncover. As an Edinburgh guru, I specialize in the mysterious side of the city – think haunted tales in the eerie streets of Portobello, Joppa, and the atmospheric charm of Stockbridge. Prepare for an exhilarating journey through Edinburgh's neighborhoods. Join me as we unravel the magic of this remarkable city together!
