Scotland: Out and About in Edinburgh...

edinburgh city break blog review 2016After shirking all responsibility and spending the first late afternoon/evening in the confines of the beautiful Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, it was time to venture out into the beautiful Scottish capital just before midday after a rather indulgent breakfast (see previous post).  Coats, umbrellas and greedy appetites firmly in place, we headed out in search of culture, kilts and cafĂ©s!

Edinburgh Mimi's Bakehouse blog review
Edinburgh Mimi's Bakehouse cake review
Edinburgh Mimi's Bakehouse review 2016Okay, who's bright idea was it to wear heeled boots?  I've battled miles of cobbled roads, woods, icy conditions and everything else under the sun (or lack thereof) in heels, however the steady stretch of the Royal Mile proved to be a challenge!  Though having said that, it does kind of cover the whole 'working out while travelling' dilemma.  Anyway, just before flying into Edinburgh, I did a quick sweep of some online reviews and stumbled across the suggestion of visiting Mimi's Bakehouse.  The bakery has three stores located in Leith, Corstorphine and Old Town.  Visiting the latter was probably the best thing I've done in my entire life.  Seriously.  What's on the menu?  Mars Bar krispie cakes, enormous brownies smothered in melted Snickers and cupcakes resembling heaven in baking paper casings.  Mmm...

the royal mile signage edinburghAfter indulging in a slice of Mars Bar Krispie Cake the size of my face, I realised we were just moments away from Holyrood Palace (The Palace of Holyrood House), the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland.  It had been right at the top of my travel hitlist for visiting Edinburgh and so realising it was just a stone's throw away was a lovely surprise!

Holyrood Palace travel blog review
english travel blogger in scotlandTickets purchased, audio guide collected and gift shop accidentally entered before even entering the palace, it was time to discover the Queen's official residence in Scotland!  If you're as fascinated as myself by historic buildings and the lives of those gone before us, Holyrood Palace is certainly worth visiting.  Sadly, like most grand places of interest, no photography is allowed within.  However I can say with total honesty that both The State Apartments and Mary Queen of Scots' Chambers are more than enough to entertain you without the clickety-click of your camera - she says through gritted teeth...

A highlight of visiting Holyrood Palace is undoubtedly the ruins of the Abbey which are located in the stunning setting of Arthur's Seat (main peak of Edinburgh's group of hills).  Ordinarily I can be found impatiently tapping my foot with my camera poised in the air as I await a 'clean shot'.  However on this occasion, the visitor wearing the dashing red rucksack was more than welcome to hang around, as he helped emphasise the spectacular height of the Abbey.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I like anything that compares and ultimately dwarfs us.  The ruins were huge, the 822ft hill nearby was even bigger, and the two combined served as a beautiful reminder of just how small we - and our troubles - actually are.

Hard Rock Cafe Edinburgh review
hard rock cafe edinburgh blog review 2016
hard rock cafe edinburgh original burgerWe ended our final night in Edinburgh with a delicious dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe - the fourth restaurant from the chain to tick off my list!  Keeping in mind I'm a list-making-fanatic, this is probably my favourite one to keep.  I've been ticking off the cities ever since creating the burger-focussed goal of visiting as many Hard Rock Cafe chain destinations as possible a while ago in Barcelona.  Though yes, there have been times I've groaned dramatically on the flight home as I learn I was really near one of their locations without realising.  Reason enough to return to a city?  Yes.  Though it's not just the delicious - and refreshingly predictable when in a new place - food that has me jotting down their addresses, but also the ambience.  As always, it was loud and bursting with energy!

Psst!  For all the Under 25s visiting Edinburgh - bring ID with you, or else you have to stand far away from the bar.  It will also help solve the discussion at front of house as to whether you're even over 18.  Yeah, not my finest moment...

We skipped dessert, knowing we'd picked up a couple of extra cakes from Mimi's Bakehouse earlier in the day and stashed them away in the hotel room for later.  The extra time enabled a peaceful evening walk (10 mins) from the Hard Rock Cafe back to The Caledonian.  I would suggest the city is at its most beautiful come the evening; the colours of the buildings seem far more dramatic and on this particular night, the sky seemed almost midnight blue.  It genuinely felt as though the city was putting on a farewell show in a bid to make a lasting impression - though isn't that always the case?

I'm amazed it's taken me this long to visit Scotland's capital, though it was certainly worth the wait - at the very least for the spectacular nighttime view of Edinburgh Castle from the hotel room!  Sweet dreams?  Definitely.

With love,

Gabrielle x

  1. Wow, I must say that I see Edinburgh from a different lights after this, Gabrielle. I've always known it to be a gorgeous city but you took it to a whole new level and I wish I could fly over tomorrow. I'm not a fan of desserts in general but I will be making a trip to Mimi's Bakehouse if I am there!

  2. That final shot of Edinburgh Castle is gorgeous and it looks like you're having an amazing time! I now live only about 2 and half hours from Edinburgh so I really should visit at some point. Love the photos of the ruins of the Abbey that you got too, stunning. - Tasha

  14. I can't get over that view of the Edinburgh castle from your hotel, it's incredible! From what I can see in these photos Scotland looks so beautiful, even more beautiful than I'd imagined and very Harry Potter'esque, which makes sense. I couldn't have gone past that bakery without getting something as well, a snickers brownie sounds so perfect right about now.

  27. There is nothing I despise more than when being denied photographs. Urgh. This happened to me before in Europe, way before the rise of social media too. I actually had an argument with the security guard who ended up confiscating my camera (c***!). What was worse was going inside and finding MANY tourist in there taking sneaky photos. :o|

    Scotland is so precious, I never used to give it much thought until a few years ago when several friends travelled there throughout the year. One in particular shared EVERY moment of her trip and I just fell in love. I never really appreciated nature (I was much younger back then lol) until seeing her photos. And not just the landscape but the architecture and points of interest. It is absolutely breathtaking. I really want to visit one day and your photos have really stirred emotions. I'll be sure to remember sneakers for that trek. I don't like wearing heels in Europe period because cobblestones and Sonia are not a great mix, I have enough trouble keeping my balance without the addition of unstable flooring! Hahaha!

I have to seriously thank you for sharing your visit and keeping us posted on your stay in Scotland because I've never read anything about Scotland before, so I had no idea that it was this beautiful in it's scenery, architecture and OMG, food! My husband wants to take me to Ireland someday, since my grandmother was born and raised in County Dublin and when we do go, I will most certainly have to make my way over to Scotland because although I am proud of my Irish roots, forgive my grandma, but Scotland looks much cooler, haha. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend!

    I was actually planning to go up North soon, but as it'd only be for a weekend I think it'd be better to wait and spend like a week there, because as you show, there is just so much to do there.

    I like how you ended your last night in Edinburgh at the Hard Rock Cafe - that's one of the #1 food places I'd love to check out.
