One of the larger contemporary art galleries in the city, The Fruitmarket puts on some big shows. It also has a fine variety of magazines and books in its shop. Particularly impressive is their use of whiskey as drink of choice for exhibition openings. Above the gallery is Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh’s most popular suicide spot.

One of the great things about Edinburgh is its abnormally large number of gardens and open spaces, including seven hills in and around it. A walk up this particular one on a sunny day is really pleasant. To the North you can see over the city to the sea and to the South you can see right in to the dark depths of the Scottish countryside.

There has been an increasing number of small galleries and artist-run spaces emerging in Edinburgh recently. Superclub is one that definitely stands out. It's housed in an old garage/tyre depot that has been converted into a gallery upstairs and studio spaces down below. They put on exhibitions, bands, films and all sorts of other fun stuff. It’s a really exciting place. My studio is here.
