Skyzack recently visited the very beautiful capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh.

We had a long weekend packed full of sightseeing, culture, food, fun, and if we’re being honest…a whole lot of partying.

Take a look at what we got up to.


After our lengthy train journey, we settled into our fantastic accommodation for the weekend. Skyzack strongly recommends using Airbnb for your travels; an online marketplace where individuals can advertise lodgings for short-term stays. Along with often being much cheaper than booking a hotel, you receive a much more personalised and unique experience.

We were lucky enough to find a lovely apartment available within 20 minutes walking distance from the train station, and the main areas we would be exploring.

Ceilidh (Pronounced kay-lee):

A ‘Ceilidh’ is a traditional Gaelic tradition, made up of folk music and dancing.

Friday night, Skyzack visited Ghillie-Dhu, a traditional Scottish restaurant/bar, which holds public Ceilidh event evenings. The night consisted of a sophisticated 3-course meal, a live folk band, a DJ and of course, plenty of dancing.

Sight-seeing with Lomography:

After a fun-filled Friday, Saturday certainly called for a relaxed day. For that reason, we took upon exploring the stunning city of Edinburgh.

Lomography is an experimental and creative photography practice that is ideal for documenting adventures. Therefore, our trip to Edinburgh was the perfect opportunity!

These particular photos were taken with a 35mm multi-lens action sampler.

St. Giles Cathedral:

Scott Monument:

As you can see, we had a busy, fun-filled time! We hope you enjoyed seeing what we got up to and we can’t wait to show you our next Skyzack adventure.
