The Boy and I decided to have a bit of an adventure for NYE last year and hop of the train to Edinburgh! Neither of us had been before and as we are so close the Kings Cross it was a doddle to get up there… a couple of DVDs and the Walking Dead game on the ipad and we where there!
We had lucked out with an amazing new hotel based in Haymarket so the location couldn’t have been better. We did our usual thing of exploring and finding some amazing bars and restaurants…
The Red Squirrel Bar was our first stop of the trip. It had some amazing guest ales and some very yummy haggis burgers which made The Boy very happy!
We also had an amazing meal at Maison Bleue down a really cute little street. A great mix of french and Scottish food… nom nom nom
On the same street we found a fab art gallery called The Red Door Gallery buried between loads of amazing tweed shops! Loads of local artist and fantastic prints… so tempting to buy the whole shop!!
We also did the touristy thing and explored the castle … It was SO windy and wet but The Boy still managed to take lots of beautiful photos!
But of course the main reason we came to Edinburgh was for the amazing Hogmanay Street Party…
