The face of Edinburgh changes with every season. In winter, you can rediscover the city in a whole new light. After last night’s snowfall, we were happy to wake up this morning to a blanket of snow, a big blue sky and bright sunshine.
Scottish winter is beautiful!
Here is a selection of 17 beautiful pictures of Edinburgh under the snow:

Student life is full of challenges and budgeting is one of the hardest of them all. When you’re adjusting to living away from home, keeping track of your cash can be tricky. Liberty living did a survey to find out which cities in the UK offer students a budget lifestyle.
To create an overall ranking of the top cities for budget student living, Living Liberty selected 20 of the largest UK university cities: Aberdeen, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Sheffield, Southampton and Wolverhampton. They then used Google Maps to set a search radius from each city’s primary university for both charity shops (2km) and two large chain budget supermarkets (5km) to get a total for both charity shops and budget supermarkets.
They based the survey on:
The number of charity shops and budget supermarkets close to universities in each city
The cost of an annual university gym membership
The cost of a burger and pint at a local student pub
The cost of two cinema tickets
Edinburgh comes out on top of the best budget cities for students. Scotland’s capital wins first place largely thanks to the 20 charity shops and 13 budget supermarkets in the vicinity – giving students a tonne of options to get good value food and clothing. Annual gym membership is also low, and you can get a burger and a pint for a reasonable price, too.
A fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound, join the iconic event in Edinburgh this week.
St.Giles Cathedral is hosting the Museum of the Moon, a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. This event starts today and will be in Edinburgh until Sunday 27th January 2019. Measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
To celebrate the installation, Burns&Beyond will present an accompanying programme of lunar inspired events, talks and concerts beneath the moon.
