Cherry Blossom Season in Edinburgh
Spring is upon us and the grey, rainy skies have transformed to glorious blue which gives the perfect backdrop for a stroll around the various parks Edinburgh has to offer!
With Spring comes Cherry Blosson season where the gorgeous Japanese trees blossom to reveal their beautiful, blush pink flowers. Starting around mid-March, there's not a huge window to catch them in all their glory so get yourself up and out and head to these spots to catch a glimpse:
Formed into a stunning archway, the popular Meadows Park boasts a lengthy walkway of pink! If you want to get an uninterrupted shot, you may need to head out early as it does get busy.
The heart of the city centre offers an Instagram worthy shot of the blossoms featuring the iconic view of Edinburgh Castle. Have a wander around Princes Street Gardens to see rows of them - they're some of the first to blossom in the city so don't miss out!
Find the famous Scottish poet, Robert Ferguson enjoying the view at this lovely, 17th-century church.
Hidden away on the Southside of the city and not far from the Royal Mile, it's a quieter spot filled with plenty of fluffy, pink blossoms.
Home to Arthurs Seat, head for a long walk around Edinburgh's largest park whilst spotting the blossoms and other Spring flowers as they pop up!
A Spring stroll with friends is a great way to explore the city in all its glory (without the snow and rain!), you may even stumble across even more picturesque spots to share too. 🌸 🌸 🌸
