After a final year of hard work, it will soon be time for the graduation ceremonies and celebrations to begin at Universities across Edinburgh. For most young achievers, it will be a once in a lifetime occasion with family and friends. So why not make it an even more memorable experience with a special dinner?

Call us biased, but we think Edinburgh is an incredibly cultured, historical and creative city - a wonderful place to visit all year round. However, it is true to say that, with so much activity and talent swarming to Edinburgh during August, this is when the city really comes alive.

Hats off to all the University students across Edinburgh heading towards graduation this year.

With six in total – University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, Heriot-Watt University, Queen Margaret University, Royal College of Surgeons and Scotland’s Rural College - Edinburgh has the second highest number of universities in the UK (joint second with its neighbour, Glasgow, and second only to London) and is also regularly named as one of the top university cities.

Quite possibly, Edinburgh is the prettiest city in UK. If not Europe. You could even argue there isn’t a prettier city to be found anywhere. It’s a matter of perception. Here’s a late winter, and early spring round up of Edinburgh happenings.

It’s September. A time for new adventures and fresh starts. With your children off to start a new term, take the opportunity to do things for yourself, start a new interest and see more of your friends. And what a better way to kick off this new phase of life, than making the most of dropping off or visiting your young adult at their university in Edinburgh?

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where to begin… a cultural whirlwind like no other, in the best possible way.

Have you ever wondered how Prestonfield's award-winning Restaurant got it's name?
