There is nowhere quite like Edinburgh. Its heady mix of history, heritage architecture, the professions, art, literature, museums, theatre, festivals, sporting prowess, the geography and the topography, its people, their interests and where they live…the list goes on and on.

Yet it is a sad truism that for many who are indigenous to an area, that same area, if not a closed book to them, has few of its chapters read.

It is so easy to miss, dismiss or overlook the intrinsic beauty of the familiar and the commonplace as we negotiate life’s hurly-burly.

Edinburgh Life strives to put that right. Each issue celebrates the myriad facets of our capital city and its environs, inviting a closer appreciation and sometimes proffering an alternative and surprising aspect of the place we think we know so well.

Edinburgh Life is for those who enjoy the finer aspects of life, whether they cost money or perhaps just a bit of precious free time to enjoy.

Heritage, history, people, places, where to go, what to eat, what to do, where to meet. In short, there is something for everyone!
