I am the mother of Martha who loves dancing, Abba & role play. We rent our next door apartment out on Airbnb when friends and family are not using it; as we love meeting new people, doing house swaps and travelling (especially the eating part of travelling).
I work in the Speciality Food Industry in Sales and am very into granola baking, jam and chutney making, eating out, gardening, foraging, walking, cycling and getting out and about.
I can give you all my top tips to enjoy Edinburgh as I have lived here since 1995!
