So I have come to the end of my Edinburgh blog posts! As a treat, here are a few more photos I took around the city.

For dinner, we went to Frankie and Benny’s. Bacon Cheeseburger with chips and tomato relish
Just plain and simple coffee. Slurp.

I also did some shopping during my visit.
Macaroons £5.15 for a bag of five from La Barantine, West Bow. Includes flavours such as Passion Fruit and Salted Caramel.
Cashmere scarf from Dunedin Cashmere, Breakfast Blend loose leaf from Eteaket, Orange Chocolate Chip Shortbread and Highland Blend tea (can’t quite remember where) and teacup neckalce from Katie Cupcake, Royal Mile
I am not sure how well you can see the detail, but a lot of the tourist attractions have penny presses. These are from Edinburgh Zoo, the Museum of Childhood and Edinburgh Castle.
I hope you have enjoyed these blog posts about Edinburgh. It was a fantastic visit and the city is somewhere you must visit one day!
