Boys Eat Scotland review of dinner at Contini Cannonball, at Cannonball House on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. After a cry for help on Twitter for suggestions on where to dine in Edinburgh at short notice on a Saturday night, a very nice person from Contini Cannonball kindly offered us a table in their new restaurant.  This…

The East Neuk of Fife is one of our favourite places to head to for a wee run in the car.  Hmmm that makes me sound a bit like my Gran, but it’s true!  The area has so much to offer from lovely beaches, quaint little seaside villages, lovely walks and of course it’s a…

Having a wander through Stockbridge we spotted a new shop and surprise surprise it wasn’t a charity shop.  The new outlet is directly opposite Costa Coffee which is really quite fitting, as this new tea shop couldn’t be more different.

Pre Dinner Cocktails at Bar Kohl After trying a few restaurants to try to book a special Birthday meal for a Saturday night, we decided to try Hotel Du Vin Bistro after choices 1, 2 and 3 were fully booked! This was rather fortunate as it allowed us to eventually make it to Bar Kohl, 54 George IV…
