If you’re like us, your Facebook/Twitter feeds are probably full of happy couples tying the knot. We are well into wedding season after all, so it’s to be expected! We’re not complaining at all, but it has reminded us that we do live in the City of Romance – Edinburgh! If you’re feeling the love, here are a few things to do with that special someone in our historic city.
A Picture Tells A Thousand Words
Edinburgh has so many stunning locations for taking the perfect couples photo. For example, you can learn a bit about the history of Edinburgh Castle and then stop on the castle walls for a quick photo opportunity and if you time it right, see the 1 O’Clock gun being fired. Two birds with one stone there, cultural and romantic! If the castle isn’t your thing, why not take a walk up the 350 million year old (extinct) volcano? The walks not difficult and the views from the top are well worth the effort.
A Romantic Stroll
Wandering around the Shore and Leith Docks is a great idea. Not only are you walking in the footsteps of the actors from the musical Sunshine on Leith (you can see the map of exactly where scenes were filmed here), but you can also stop at Mimi’s Bakehouse for a treat. If you’re on a diet this place is well worth having a day off for! If an evening stroll is more your thing, after dinner (in Skerries of course!) we’d suggest walking up the Royal Mile. The street is beautiful and the history of the area will surely add a special magic to your evening.
A Dunstane Speciality
The Dunstane know how to do romance! From all the little treats, such as hand made chocolates, Champagne on arrival or even the bespoke bouquets we can order for you, to a sumptuous dinner in Skerries, we can arrange it all. So whether you have a special occasion you want to celebrate, an important question you’d like to ask or just want to treat your partner, take a look at our Romantic Break special offer here!
