Hi, Welcome to my blog, Edinburghcitymom and thank you for visiting. My name is Lou, and I am an Edinburgh mum of three. I love travelling and sharing useful tips and travel guides on my adventures.

I entered the exciting world of social media, primarily to maintain contact with my nomadic children, two of whom are currently abroad. I am  enjoying the ‘teenage phase’ with my last child.

A Little bit about Edinburghcitymom

I love chocolate eclairs and a good cup of tea, I own one crazy black labrador.

I am happily married and have lived in Edinburgh for 27 years.

I enjoy taking photographs, and regularly contribute to Shutterstock.

My video stock is available on Pond5.

I love being with family and friends and a good G&T.

Photography is my hobby and first love but I don’t really know what I am doing yet. It’s a learning curve and great fun. Currently I have just returned from Copenhagen where my son is studying.  I made a great short 3 min video which you can watch if you click the link. Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and is an amazing cool, trendy city with stunning architecture. https://youtu.be/6vrlisYb7Cg 

I am very lucky to have some wonderful friends, especially Linn who happily gets dragged all over the place to star in my video’s. I am slowly improving, and personally I think they are pretty good.

I  started the Families Edinburgh Magazine in 2000 and sold it seven years later to the lovely Sarah, ( it’s still going strong). My background is originally in hotels & restaurants which I totally loved as people are so interesting.


Best job ever – Cultural representative for the United Kingdom in Epcot, Walt Disney World, Florida.

Hardest job ever Tattie picking as a teenager in Ayrshire, Scotland.

And finally.

Life does not have to be perfect, to be wonderful.
