Explore The Great Outdoors In Edinburgh

Ellie Walker - Outside in Edinburgh - coverSunday’s are the perfect day to get out and explore the Great Outdoors in Edinburgh. With so much nature to see on our doorstep we sometimes forget how lucky we are living in this fine city.

Let Ellie Walker guide you round some of Edinburgh’s sometimes forgotten sites, with her new Outside-In Edinburgh Travel Guide.

Ellie is a 3rd Year Illustration Student and made this little guide to go alongside her print, The Pentlands as part of their ‘Look What I Saw In Edinburgh’ Installation in our window. Ellie has her own website to accompany this illustrated guide. It features lots of helpful tips on When To Visit and How to get there on all of the areas featured in her guide.

It’s the perfect little guide when you just want to get out of the city and stretch those legs!

Some of our favourites escapes include, The Pentlands for a walk or a cycle. The views from the top are amazing. If you’re lucky you might bump in to some of these guys! We do love a highland cow!

Another favourite and within walking distance is the wonderful Botanic Gardens. You could spend hours wandering the grounds and ducking in and out of the greenhouses.  Spot many exotic plants in the hot houses or grab a coffee and sit watching the world float on by.

Hope you’re all having fun out there this Sunday, and are managing to avoid the sporadic rain showers. There has been the odd glimpse of sunshine too!
