There are very few venues that can boast a location as iconic as Cannonball House on Castlehill, directly next to Edinburgh Castle. We love Cannonball House with all its history and all the character you would expect from an Edinburgh Old Town building that dates back to the 17th century. Cannonball House captures all the mystery and history of the Royal Mile. You’ll be enjoying homemade scones, cakes, and sandwiches in the shadows of the first Duke Gordon, the first key keeper of Edinburgh Castle who originally owned Cannonball House.

Mit ihren stimmungsvollen Wohlfühlromanen um die ""Kleine Bäckerei am Strandweg" eroberte Jenny Colgan in Deutschland die Bestsellerlisten. Mit ihren auf der schottischen Insel Mure spielenden Romanen um Flora und die kleine Sommerküche setzt sie ihren Erfolg fort. In "Hochzeit in der kleinen Sommerküche am Meer", dem zweiten Band, entführt Colgans Leserinnen erneut in eine Welt voller Freundschaft, Liebe und köstlicher Rezepte.Mit ihren hellrosa Wänden, der Theke voller duftender Scones, Kuchen und Quiches sowie den urigen Steingutbechern für den Tee ist Floras kleine Sommerküche auf der Insel Mure inzwischen ein beliebter Treffpunkt von Einheimischen und Touristen. Neben ihrem Café, ihrem Hof und der Wettervorhersage, gehört jedoch auch Joel, ihr ehemaliger Chef und heutiger Freund zu Floras Universum. Nur ist er beruflich allzu oft in der Welt unterwegs - und während Flora unter diesen ständigen Trennungen leidet, scheint er davon unberührt. Es braucht einen ganzen Sommer, eine Hochzeit und eine Beinahe-Katastrophe, bis er erkennt, dass er kurz davor ist, Flora zu verlieren."Ich sehnte mich sofort nach der Insel Mure. Ein einziges Vergnügen."

I was born and brought up in Edinburgh and am passionate about locally produced food - I made a 16-series TV programme about eating and cycling in Scotland, called The Woman Who Ate Scotland. I want the tour to be like a food-loving friend is taking you to their favourite places - like the best place to get scones warm from the oven, served with vanilla bean cream and home made jam. Guests get to meet the makers - the fishmonger who smokes the salmon, the marshmallow lady who makes the marshmallows, the butcher who makes the haggis. I also give guests a guided tour of the fascinating history of the 18th century UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE of The New Town.I have been running my unique food tours for four years and am used by tour companies such as Abercrombie and Kent and also VisitScotland. I can also tailor tours to suit your group from hen nights with safari hats to sourcing a piper to pipe you into a unique kilt shop!
