9 Photos That’ll Make You Want To Spend Autumn in Edinburgh!
I think we can all agree that Edinburgh is beautiful in every season, however, we do think Edinburgh wears autumn particularly well. For a brief time, the city is clothed in brilliant shades of crimson and gold, accentuating the city’s striking architecture and bringing it to life. It’s the season to dig out woolly jumpers and wellies and head out for evening strolls in the golden light. But, it’ll soon be time for autumn to leave and winter to descend, and we wanted to share several of our favourite photos of the season, which we’re sure will make you want to spend next autumn in Edinburgh!

You couldn’t choose a better place to enjoy an autumn day in Edinburgh than the Botanic Gardens and Laura has captured its beauty perfectly! Within the Botanic Gardens there are several cafes and even an art gallery, so why not wrap up warm and spend an afternoon there.

Liberton Kirk is slightly outside of the city centre but is easily accessible by bus. The church is beautiful all year round but when its ivy starts to change colour it truly comes to life. Ildi has managed to catch the process of the ivy changing colour and isn’t it magnificent!

Georgina’s beautiful photo features St Bernard’s Well, a hidden gem which can be found along the Waters of Leith Walkway (between Stockbridge and Dean Village), and previously known for its healing mineral waters. There are several benches near the well for you to sit, soak up the beautiful surroundings, and listen to the soothing sound of the river.
