The perfect sunny day in Edinburgh

The perfect sunny day in Edinburgh

[ultimate_spacer height="10"]It’s officially BBQ season! Did you know the city was named the ‘UK’s greenest city? What better time to get out and take advantage than the lovely parks and green spaces in Edinburgh than in the warm summer months? For those of you who prefer to soak up the sun in a beer garden, don’t worry – Edinburgh has plenty of quirky sun traps! To give you some inspiration, we’ve picked out some of our favourite places to spend a sunny day in Edinburgh.

Royal Botanic Gardens

One of Edinburgh’s highlights has to be the Royal Botanic Gardens. Although it’s a popular tourist attraction, you will never feel crowded in these vast gardens. The perfect place for serenity and relaxation - grab a book, a picnic and pick your favourite spot in the gardens to enjoy the sun. And, did we mention entry is free?

The Pitt Market

The Pitt Market is located in an industrial yard in Leith, but don’t let that put you off! Enjoy live music, street food, bonfires and an outdoor bar at this weekly festival which runs every Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer. Entry is only £2 and we’re sure you’ll probably want to spend the whole day making your way around the fantastic food trucks. Although we would like to keep this hidden gem a secret, The Pitt Street Market is something to shout about!

The Grassmarket

The Grassmarket is a favoured choice amongst the Cullen Property team! With the abundance of bars and restaurants plus outdoor seating areas, the Grassmarket has a continental feel about it, especially on a hot sunny day. Top tip – head to The Beehive for one of the best hidden beer gardens in the city!

The Meadows

Arguably the best spot in Edinburgh on a sunny day is the Meadows – there is a reason crowds of people flock here in the summer months to enjoy the weather. So, grab some friends, a disposable BBQ and soak up the sun in one of Edinburgh’s largest parks.

The Cumberland Bar

It can be difficult to find spacious beer gardens in the New Town. However, if you head to The Cumberland Bar you will discover a fantastic hidden garden. One of Alexander McCall Smith’s ‘44 Scotland Street’ haunts, you will no doubt be surrounded by a mix of eccentric Edinburgh characters in the Cumberland Bar.
