Visiting our Edinburgh store? Here's what to eat, see and do in the cobbled capital…


Dinner: Timberyard

This former warehouse blends its industrial features with cosy, rustic accents: tartan blankets, low lighting and dripping candles. What's on the menu? Seasonal Scottish food - supplied by local artisan producers - with Nordic influences. Try the smoked beef loin - it's to die for.


Coffee & Cake: Urban Angel

This chic café on Forth Street is well worth a post-shopping pit stop. Its resident baristas will whip you up one of the best coffees in the city, and may even give you a demo on how to recreate their delicious drinks. It's also a haven for hot chocolate lovers with chocolatiers Edward and Irwyn providing luxury blends. Don't leave without trying the organic homemade cakes - the fluffy carrot cake gets our vote.


Oasis: Royal Botanic Gardens

Just one mile outside the city centre, you'll find 72 acres of lush, landscaped grounds. Founded in 1670 as a physic garden to grow medicinal plants; the capital's stunning gardens now boast over 13,000 species of trees, flowers and shrubs. Summertime is best for the Glasshouse ponds' giant Victoria water lilies and the famous rock garden's pastel dwarf phloxes. What better way to while away a warm afternoon?


Stay: Glasshouse Hotel

Stray moments from Princes Street, and you'll stumble upon the 150 year old façade of the Lady Glenorchy Church and entrance to this five-star boutique hotel. Head to the 2-acre rooftop garden for unrivalled views of Calton Hill.
