About Edinburgh Tourist

Hi I’m Amy and this is Edinburgh Tourist – a guide to Edinburgh, my home for the last fifteen years.

I’m not from Edinburgh originally, so I know what it’s like exploring this amazing city for the first time. There is so much to see and if time is limited it can be overwhelming. Thankfully, I’ve had a long time to get to know the place, so I hope to share some tips to help visitors with their holiday planning. I also aim to make this a useful site for local people looking to discover something new in their home town.

Please take a look at what’s happening this month with the what’s on calendar, and browse the upcoming events and top attractions in the city. I also keep a blog of the places I visit in Edinburgh, which might give you some ideas for your own days out.

If you have any comments or questions, or would be interested in working with me, please contact me. I’d love to hear from you!
