A weekend in Scotland

07 March 2018

In October last year, my family rented a house near Edinburgh in a small coastal town called Lower Largo for four peaceful days. We did nothing but eat our weight in cheese, play games, spend an unreasonable amount of time in the local pub and take long walks on the beach to blow the cobwebs (hangovers) away. We did spend one day in Edinburgh, I haven’t been since I was a kid but it’s still so gorgeous, even on the miserable day we went. 

I am definitely a city girl but I can’t help but want to pack up and move to a seaside town whenever I visit one! They’re so serene and nostalgic, I love taking photos of them. Our house for the weekend was lovely and housed Mathieu & I, my two stepbrothers and my dad & step mum, all quite cosily although it lost points from me for not having a log burner but I guess I can’t complain too much as the sea view from the living room was beautiful to wake up to. 

As for Edinburgh, I think I fell in love all over again! The gorgeous buildings, the history and shops are just something else. My family had to drag me out of the shops and then I dragged them to The Elephant House Cafe, where J.K Rowling wrote Harry. It was so humbling to see. Although we only spent the day, Mathieu & I made plans to return again five months later. 

Have you ever been to Edinburgh?
