The Cupcake Cafe is not particularly convenient to get to but it is worth finding! As the name suggests they have an extensive selection of cupcakes that seems to change daily, we could hardly choose what to have! Aside from cupcakes however they also do...More

This tour is a great way to see Edinburgh, sampling some sweet treats along the way. It's a nice mix of sampling and something to take away so you don't feel overloaded with sugar by the end. Discounts are also available on any purchases you...More

This was a great tour made even more fantastic by our tour guide Patricia. Quite a bit of walking involved (a lot of it uphill) so not ideal for infirm or young children. I live in Edinburgh & hadn't discovered some of the fantastic places...More
