In April 2011, while working as a consultant in the science education field, I was asked to visit the Edinburgh Science Festival on behalf of a Middle Eastern client who wanted to bring something similar – but much grander – to the GCC region. I’d only visited the city once before, as a teenager, and welcomed the opportunity to re-visit the Scottish capital.
The Edinburgh Science Festival is fantastic and I highly recommend visiting it if you ever get the chance. There’s so much to do and they cater very well for children of all ages. I had a blast. However, I also took the opportunity to explore the city itself and take a trip just north of town to explore Lothian.
