“The nearest gallery to the flat. Packed with interest in terms of biography in art. Aside from that the building itself is an absolute star. Short walk then across St Andrews Square to the Scottish National Gallery. 10/15 minute bus ride depending on traffic or 25/30 minute walk but uphill. ”

Galería de arte
“In my view as an art lover all the Scottish galleries make an effort to be accessible to all and they are the least stuffy of all British galleries. Towered over by the Castle the gallery is the prominent building on the garden side of Princes Street. Not to be missed for the breadth of content. If you like walking its walkable from the flat or otherwise a 15 minute bus ride from the Leith Walk bus stop opposite Casa Amiga. As ever great cafe but as its in town lots of alternatives nearby. Spend an hour to a week in here. It’s content really is that good! My favourite the Van Gogh’s ”

Miradores panorámicos

Mountain
“Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano which is the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh, Scotland, which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated just to the east of the city centre, about 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city and beyond, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch. At a spur of the hill, Salisbury Crags has historically been a rock climbing venue with routes of various degrees of difficulty, but due to hazards, rock climbing is now restricted to the South Quarry and a permit is required.”

“This is my top recommendation for visitors, particularly on short visits. It's like being on a movie set with its iconic, surprising buildings. Climb the Tower to get 360 degree views over the city, sea and countryside. It's the best place to get your bearings after arrival.”
