If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you will know that I spent last weekend in Edinburgh. We decided to fly rather than taking a train or driving up as it was only an hour and a half from London Luton Airport. Our flight was at 7am so we headed over to the airport at 5am and dawdled around duty-free to pass time. Conveniently, I ran out of my signature scent, YSL Black Opium, a few days before our trip so I treated myself to a large bottle, the discount was insane.

Our first day in Edinburgh was jam-packed. We visited Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, Princes Street Gardens, Scottish National Museum, The Hard Rock Café, The Dome, St Giles Cathedral, Victoria Street, Scott Monument, Ross Foundation and Greyfriars Graveyard all within 11 hours before heading back to our hotel, The Marriot, to take full advantage of the hotel spa and unwind.

Sunday was our second and last day in Edinburgh. To start the day, we climbed to the top of Calton Hill which was a lot easier than I had anticipated. Despite being breathless by the time we got to the top, it was completely worth it, the view was incredible.

To pass time before our flights home, we took a tour of Edinburgh Dungeon, ate at a quirky café called Southern Cross near the station and wandered around the Fruit Market Gallery before jumping on a tram back to the airport.
