What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

7 Edinburgh Instagrammers You Need to Follow


We think Instagram is a wonderful thing. A photo really can convey a thousand words, and Instagram is full of the most stunning snaps of our beloved Edinburgh. If you’ve ever visited you’ll know how well the city lends itself to being photographed. We follow several excellent instagrammers who really know how to capture the beauty of Edinburgh – here are 7 of our favourites…



The girl behind the camera, Shawna, spends her days exploring the city and delivers consistently beautiful and sophisticated photos of Edinburgh – no matter how grey the weather might be!



The owner of this mouthwatering Instagram account describes herself as a “girl with a mighty appetite” and visits both the newcomers as well as the oldies on the Edinburgh foodie scene. Warning! Following @misspiggyuk will most definitely make you hungry – even if you just had lunch.



Edinburgh Sketcher’s snaps allows you to see Edinburgh through his exquisite drawings. Not long ago we had the opportunity to ask the man behind the sketches a few questions, see what he had to say here.



Follow this account and you’re guaranteed a regular supply of photos that will quench your thirst for lovely Edinburgh shots. This guy really has an eye for street photography.



Iconic Photo Tours run a range of exciting walking tours all over Edinburgh, including smart phone tours where you’ll be learning about the city and how to take amazing photos with your phone. Check out the Iconic Tours website for more information.



This is quite an obvious one but worth a follow nonetheless – 27,000 followers can’t be wrong! The account also features beautiful shots taken by other avid instagrammers, and if you tag your Edinburgh photo with #thisisedinburgh or #edinphoto you might become one of the chosen ones.



We love our food and just had to include another food-focused account that showcases just how many amazing eateries there are in Edinburgh. If you want to stay up to date with where you should be eating in the Burgh, @eatinburgh by Hannah & Pippa is one to follow.



Since we are a cheeky bunch we’re also throwing in our own Instagram account as a bonus. We love sharing photos of our gorgeous self-catering apartments we rent out on behalf of their owners – as well as snaps of our beautiful city and the odd foodstagram here and there. Follow us!
