Whether you are visiting Edinburgh or live here, Centotre has used experience and the book Scotland The Best by Peter Irvine – which you can purchase at Centotre – to come up with the perfect way to spend a day or weekend in the beautiful city.

1. Begin with a fresh, delicious breakfast at Centotre – of course!

4. Hop on a bus or walk through the lovely villiage of Stockbridge and visit The Dean & Modern Art Galleries.

5. Take a leisurely stroll through the Royal Botanics and view the largest glass house in the UK.

6. Try out our sister restaurant, Zanzero, for a bit of lunch.

7. Hop on a Lothian Bus (no’s 12, 26 & 31) and head out to visit the penguins at the Edinburgh Zoo.

8. Feeling energetic? Take a wee hike up Calton Hill or a big hike up Arthur’s Seat to experience the very best views this city has to offer.

9. Got kiddies? They’ll enjoy the fun & learning that is to be had at Dynamic Earth
