Last week I made it to Edinburgh for a December day trip. The Christmas markets were calling me and I just had to check them out. Since it’s only 90 minutes on the train, I made it to the city by 9:30, giving me the entire day to explore.

I’m pretty familiar with Edinburgh and so I spent most of the day just taking in the atmosphere. However, I have never really ventured up to Nelson’s monument so this time, my friends and I made sure to head up there.

The views are stunning! We timed the walk for sunset and the winter skyline was worth the wait! From this point you get a 360 degree view of the city and you can even look over towards Arthur’s seat.

Once the sun had set, I spent some time in the Edinburgh Christmas markets. It’s safe to say, it’s definitely bigger and better than most – it even beats Bath! However, there were so many people that I got barely any photographs. But sometimes you just have to put the camera down and enjoy the experience…

It is so nice to escape to Edinburgh every now and then! What a great city it is!

What is your go-to day trip?
