On a personal note…

My Favourite Place in Edinburgh – The city centre. I live near Lothian Road and love living in the heart of the city.

Favourite Holiday – Belfast. Had a brilliant weekend away across the water with my better half. Soaked in the sights, soaked in the history and soaked in the craft beer. Would definitely go back!

Favourite Food – A supersize extra-hot steak strips burrito from Bonnie Burrito.

Favourite Film – Edge of Tomorrow. Comedy, romance, war, drama and time-travelling aliens – this movie has it all!

Favourite things to do in my spare time – Practice my guitar, hike to the summits of Munros and play 5-a-side football.
