An impressive castle, a mottled history, a beautiful city scape, a famous festival, a fancy whiskey museum; Edinburgh has a lot to offer a traveller…..all bar the weather. At least in January!
We visited(although not my first visit) for a brief weekend trip at the end of January. Within minutes of our first outing we had purchased an additional umbrella, hand warmers and went in search of a new beanie. The weather can only be described as ‘challenging’. I liken it to standing in the shower fully clothed and then going about your business outdoors all day in a temperature of 2 degrees. Anyone who knows me will attest to the fact that I AM probably the coldest person on the planet and ‘I’m so cold’ is my most overused phrase. As an Aussie living in the UK, I’ve just never acclimatised but then I’d probably be cold in the Sahara!!
