Climbing the Seven Hills of Edinburgh

You’ll find when walking around Edinburgh that it’s not a particularly flat city. No matter where you’re going, you’ll find yourself panting from the sloped streets and many, many staircases.

My Favourite Places to Plant Shop in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is such a wonderful place to shop for plants. There are so many independent shops across the city that sell hundreds of plants, pots and accessories.
