Life & Style Edinburgh

The long awaited annual Life &  Style Edinburgh weekender is back in the 'burgh, have you booked your tickets yet? For just £10 you will get an Edinburgh Gin fizz on arrival, entry to fashion shows, lifestyle talks, express beauty treatments and workshops. We are booked in for Saturday and I'm looking forward to catching up with a friend who is coming along with me. Who are you bringing with you?

Artline Open Doors

Meanwhile in Fife Artline is having an open doors weekend, focussing on heritage and art. Venues include stations and adjacent buildings along the Fife railway line such as the Aberdour Signal Box Studio or Burntisland Eklektik.


Freemasons' Hall Open Day

This Saturday is the Spring Open Day of the Freemasons' Hall on George Street. Admission is free and doors are open from midday with last entry at 3.15pm. There will be tours of the building as well as opportunity to do some shopping, including books and whiskies.


The Garden of Cosmic Speculation

Have you ever heard of The Garden of Cosmic Speculation? Yes, there is really a garden with such name and it is spectacular indeed. The garden is located in Dumfries and Galloway and it is only open to the public once a year - this Sunday in 2018! It's a private garden of Charles Jencks, who is also behind the land formations of Jupiter Artland and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. We visited last year and loved the place. Make sure to book your ticket and arrive super early as the garden and surrounding country roads can get super busy.

Have a nice weekend!
