REVIEW – LIMBO, Edinburgh’s Christmas


Edinburgh’s Christmas has been sparkly and magic many times before — but one thing it has perhaps never been is sexy.

FEATURE – Edinburgh’s Christmas Light Night

Fittingly, the evening began with a stunning sunset and ended with an equally impressive moonrise – we’re not quite sure how Edinburgh’s Christmas managed to organise that! In between, lights sparkled in East Princes […]

CHRISTMAS REVIEW – The Edinburgh Wheel 2012

If you venture into town over the next few weeks, you’ll be hard pushed to miss the Edinburgh Wheel beside the Scott Monument. During the day it sparkles in the sunshine and at night, it lights up. We paid a visit to East Princes Street Gardens this morning and took our first 2012 ride on […]
