For the active people just outside the city centre is Arthur's seat. Its a pretty steep climb, but for those looking for a less active walk there is a shorter climb at the base of the hills through the meadows. Edinburgh doesn't get much rain and most days are sunny so morning walks are very popular although it does get very cold over here in Winter but not any different from the Irish Winter.

Pouring the coffees was Alien to me and was more difficult to do than I had thought. My first coffee was pretty crap but as the class proceeded I started to get a little bit better but, I wouldn't say I will be competing in any Barista competitions any time soon!
Edinburgh does not lack in things to do. Whiskey tasting and Gin tasting are also great in the city even though Scottish whiskeys and gins have nothing on the Irish versions. These tours are better if you have the day off after too as you can definitely make a day and night out of it and not worry about the sore head the next morning.
These are just a few things I did in Edinburgh as well as plenty of shopping, socialising in the many great pubs and bars and eating out in the excellent and diverse selection of eatery's. I can safely say I was never bored or left idol on my time in this vibrant city. I would recommend anyone to do there placement here!!!!!!
