Hi, I'm Edgar, your friendly local host here in Edinburgh! I absolutely love this cultural gem of a city. There's always something happening—from fascinating history to vibrant events. The architecture here is stunning, a welcoming place with an amazing variety of food and shopping options. I enjoy strolling down the Royal Mile when it's not too crowded, exploring the Botanic Gardens, and wandering through neighbourhoods filled with unique local and second-hand stores. Edinburgh feels both unique and cosy. I'm passionate about our rich cultural events and know the ins and outs of Morningside, Stockbridge, the Royal Mile, and more. Whether it's Harry Potter, ghost stories, or the intriguing history of Edinburgh and Scotland, including tales of the Royal Family and hidden gems, I've got plenty of stories to share. I look forward to showing you around this incredible city!
