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.

The roads in Edinburgh are dreadful and it can be pretty treacherous as a cyclist, so this is a rare treat. An old railway tunnel and now part of Cycle Route 1, This is your exit ramp from Edinburgh to the beautiful coast of East Lothian. It goes on for freakin ages and there's nothing like freewheeling at high speed through it on a sunny day, coming out the other end with Arthur's Seat in view and the countryside ahead of you.

A cracking wee bookshop. They have an excellent range of arts magazines, journals, books and zines.

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.

The Water of Leith Walkway runs all the way from Balerno - South-West of Edinburgh - to the port of Leith. It's a ribbon of green snaking right through the heart of the city, taking you right by the Modern galleries, Stockbridge, Dean Village and many other beautiful districts. Always quiet and tranquil, at any point of the journey you'd be forgiven for forgetting you're in the heart of a capital city.

Nice wee pub on Leith walk. Not the rawest pub in Leith so probably a good shout for the type of person that might be reading this.
