My favourite bar in the city. It’s filled with fish, beautiful cycling memorabilia and great bottled german beer. Conveniently a perfect sun-trap outside at five o’clock, the staff are really chilled and the locals are quiet characters. It’s also worth checking out their sister bar, The Tourmalet, just off Leith Walk.

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.

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.
