A staycation in Edinburgh with magical views over the Old Town.
AD – GIFTED STAY & AFFILIATE LINKS
After a turbulent 2019, my birthday rolled around in November and I was adamant that I wanted no fuss. My ideal birthday is always a relaxed hotel stay, maybe with a spa and some nice little coffee spots to visit. Zack, on the other hand, is always determined that there must be some sort of celebration (he loves a party). But after loosing my mum a couple of months before my birthday, I knew I just wanted time to switch off.
We decided to do a stay-cation if you will, in Edinburgh (really it is just a walk up the hill for us). Even though we live here, Edinburgh has so much magic to it, there is always a new way to see the city. Our stay didn’t disappoint. Our view at home every morning (if you follow me on Instagram, you will know it well) is Edinburgh’s New Town, so it was dreamy to wake up on my birthday with a champagne watching the sunrise over Edinburgh’s Old Town.
The stay had such a response on my Instagram, that I thought I would share it for you here on my blog in case you are ever looking for a little travel inspo in Edinburgh (you will find a lot more here too).
We stayed in one of The Radisson Collection Edinburgh Designer Suites that has beautifully dramatic views over Old Town. We could have stayed in that bed and watched the sun rise and fall all weekend. It was perfect.
There is so much on offer around the area. From coffee to culture, if you want to venture out and explore you will be spoilt for choice. If you would like a recommendation, leave a comment below and I will get back to you. Or maybe that’s for another blog post? I have a full Instagram highlight of coffee recommendations here ❤️
