After Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations it’s time to welcome visitors to Edinburgh who want to attend a Burns Supper. We enjoy meeting visitors who are spending their summer holidays here in January– travelling from Australia or New Zealand to escape the summer heat and visit the land of their ancestors in an extended stay to explore Scotland.
As it’s the birthday of Robert Burns in January, we do have to answer the question about where our visitors can find a Burns Supper in Edinburgh, as they’ve often drunk a toast to our national bard in far-flung lands but want to find the ‘real thing’ in Scotland. This usually necessitates a hurried search by me through the local web pages, to see which local restaurants and pubs are putting on a special menu or event.
