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.

Not just a cafe but a bakery too, Falko is one of the city's most charming places to eat and drink. Edinburgh is known for its independent cafes, but Falko is maybe the only one where they don't play music and the bread makes you pee your pants with joy. Also worth cycling down the Innocent Railway and visiting their seaside ice cream place out in Gullane.

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.
