Gently twinkling lights, a beautiful tree and a thronging Christmas market – is there any better way to mark the build-up of the festive season? The beautiful city of Edinburgh is the perfect backdrop with its castle on the hill and busy high street.
Visitors and tourists, as well as plenty of locals, flock to the Christmas events but what can we expect in the coming weeks?
The market begins trading at 10 am on 17th November and will be open on most days until 10 pm. You can enjoy the atmosphere as well as the bespoke and traditional Christmas gifts on offer right up to Christmas Eve. You can also enjoy them after the main day itself and into the New Year before the celebrations of Hogmanay start.
There is something beautiful about this market right in the centre of the city. Offering a unique shopping experience, there is also plenty of food and drink to sample too. It’s fair to say that there is something for everybody here and deserves more than one visit.
Like the Christmas Market, the bar runs from 17th November to 5th January and is the ideal chance to immerse yourself into the wonderful world of Scottish whisky (and other drinks, of course).
There is everything you could possibly imagine but tasty cocktails to warming toddies that keep the winter cold at bay. Johnnie Walker is a well-known, established iconic Scottish brand so it’s no surprise that this brand lends its name to the festive bothy bar.
Bringing flavours from across Scotland, when you want to soak up the romance of the festive atmosphere of this beautiful city at Christmas and Hogmanay, this is the place to do it.
