Top Ten Instagram Posts 2020

2020 has been some year. With travel restrictions in place, holidays cancelled, and more of us spending time at home, many of us have taken the opportunity to rediscover our own city.

In between Zoom calls, baking banana bread and cleaning the entire house from top to bottom, we’ve explored Edinburgh’s nooks and crannies, packed up picnics and eaten alfresco in the city’s parks and gardens, braced the salty air of the coastline and dusted-off the bike lurking in the garden shed and explored the city on 2 wheels.

And while doing so, more of us have rediscovered our love of capturing our captivating city on film. We’ve loved seeing your images of Edinburgh through rain or shine, and everything in-between, and are delighted to share with you our top Instagram photos of 2020:
