Mr Bug and I were asked by the folks at Fort Kinnaird if we wanted to try out Chiquito, one of the new restaurants that has opened fairly recently in the complex as part of the big revamp of the shopping centre. Having been before and being fairly impressed by the changes, I was excited to go back and see what else the new food offering had to offer.
While it’s great that so many visitors come to Edinburgh to explore the city centre, it’s worth bearing in mind that the capital is also a great gateway to the rest of Scotland through fantastic train links. This weekend, Edinburgh became even more connected to the South with the opening of the Borders Railway.
Note from the Edinbug: I know a lot of people come to Edinburgh to get a grips on whisky or scotch, and it’s true that the city is a fantastic gateway to many Scottish distilleries. The thing is, I don’t know the first thing about whisky, so luckily my pal John has offered to write up a tour of Glenkinche Distillery for the site – I hope you enjoy it!
Last week Mr Bug took the 30 bus out of town, towards Newcraighall, and had a fabulous date night at the new and improved Fort Kinnaird cinema and restaurant complex.
