Castles, Ghosts, and Whisky (Edinburgh)

A travel blog entry by b.mcintyre23


I know I said my trip to Cork was my favourite trip so far, but that was before getting acquainted with the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. A few international students posted in our Facebook group to see if anyone would be interested in travelling to Edinburgh. I was hoping to get to Scotland at some point while I am here, but I was unsure about …

Some may be confused by the title, but this is how they pronounce Edinburgh! I had no idea until I got there that I have been saying it wrong this whole time, oh well. This city should also be called the hilly city because you have to walk up huge flights of outdoor stairs to get to the different levels of the city (very odd). Yes there are men who …

Then the taxi came so I banged and rushed out the door before outing the bins out. Te driver was really nice and chatted away to me. Taxi cost 5.50 so I just gave him …

Scotland and its people are proud of their heritage.
You see the famous tartan patterns in the streets, in the stores, in the buses, in people's clothes. It didn't take more than 10 minutes walking randomly around the Old Town to spot a man wearing a kilt.

Edinburgh has character. It feels …

    In terms of room quality and overall service it's very much like any hostel. Nice detail on the cards to access the rooms, much safer than keys, and also decent breakfast.

    The staff was super nice and helpful, always with a smile. The bar downstaris has live music and activities every night, but it's rather small.

    Negative notes: no internet in my room (34), a simple router on the floor would resolve. Water temperature on the shower too hot, and if you try to change it you get cold water.

    Oh, the location is pretty much as good as it gets, super central just in front of the station.
