The Locals’ Guide to Edinburgh by Owen O’Leary and Claudia Monteiro

Rating: ***** (5 out of 5)

Review: This month, I went to Scotland for the first time. I was only there for a week, but in all honesty, if I could I wouldn’t have left. I’ve traveled to many places in the world but this is the first time I’ve felt so strongly about a place. Edinburgh is the city of my dreams. I heartily recommend going there to everyone, no matter where you’re from.

Since I prefer to visit places by exploring and meeting locals rather than following tourist routes, I went into a book store searching for a different kind of guide. I’m really glad I found this one. It’s a beautifully designed book written by people who live in the city, and features recommendations that go far beyond the obvious. It’s made me want to go back even more, and I actually didn’t want this book to end, because delving into it felt like being back in the city.

Recommended!
