Our Favourite Books for Visiting Edinburgh
The famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe officially kicks off today, which I thought would be a great opportunity to share the new video I recorded for our favourite picture books to visit Edinburgh. Kids will love reading these and then spotting the sights and landmarks from the books when they come and visit (for anyone travelling further afield, you may also enjoy our Top 12 Scottish Picture Books). And for those who won’t be visiting Edinburgh or Scotland any time soon, they also make for some great armchair travelling:
If you enjoyed the video, I’d be really grateful if you would subscribe to my channel. Thanks!

I love Edinburgh but haven’t been for years. These are great if you’re planning a trip.

Always love seeing new books to try and fall in love with and these look great. We’ve not been to Edinburgh and I can’t see us go anytime soon, so why not try one of the books the next time we’re at the library! :D
Greyfriar’s Bobby was a book my daughter was obsessed with after a visit to Edinburgh and a loop on the hop on/off bus that told us all about it
These books look great! I would love to take my family up to visit Edinburgh soon, it is such a gorgeous place.
I just returned from Edinburgh and hoping to take my nephew there soon, thanks for these book suggestions.

Some great choices! I didn’t realise there were so many children’s books with Edinburgh in them!
Ah Greyfriars Bobby. I love that book, it always stuck with me.
We are planning a trip to Edinburgh next year, my daughter is obsessed with pandas so we are hoping to see them at the zoo. Will have a look for some of these before our trip x
