Dating in Edinburgh: Leith and Great Views

As the Edinburgh dating site of choice, we feel we need to give you some great ideas for date nights here in Edinburgh!

Edinburgh is steeped in history and plays host to the biggest arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh Fringe, so there’s no shortage of things to do on a date. Here are some great ideas if you’re looking to push the boat out on your date…

If you’re an active pair, lace up those walking boots and make for Arthur’s Seat, a 250m high hill in the middle of Edinburgh. For a relatively easy half-hour hike, you’ll be rewarded with the best panoramic views of the city you’ll find. It’s pretty blustery on the top, but there are lots of great spots just below which are perfect for a romantic picnic for two.

To get away from the city, head to the Leith area, which boasts two Michelin star restaurants (Restaurant Martin Wishart and The Kitchin) within metres of each other. The area’s awash with quirky bars and cafes where you can grab a drink and get to know each other by the water.

Edinburgh Dating: Get Spooked or Chill on the Beach

Think you know Edinburgh pretty well? Why not see a different side to the city by being led around the atmospheric underground vaults, or cling on to each other for comfort as you take a spooky ghost tour of Edinburgh?

Prefer something more chilled as opposed to chilling? Dates don’t get more romantic than a stroll along Musselburgh beach (just a short trip from the city centre). Grab an ice cream from the legendary S. Luca of Musselburgh and see if you can spot the Bass Rock in the distance.

If you fancy something a bit more leisurely in the city, why not walk around from one chocolate shop to another to try find the best chocolate in town? You can do the same for great coffee, if you’re a coffee connoisseur.

Edinburgh dating can be a lot of fun and there is always one cultural event or another on, so let your imagination flow freely when coming up with date nights. And if you ever get tired of the city, catch a train to a nearby town and village to explore it for a day.

Is There a Free Dating Site in Edinburgh?

If you haven’t already got a date, you’re probably looking to find one and online dating is one of the easiest ways of doing so.

Many people are on a budget, especially in a university town like Edinburgh, and online dating is a very inexpensive way of meeting singles compared to going out on town and paying for drinks at various bars. However, there is no free online dating site, as it costs to run a dating site.

If you want to check out if dating is for you, Cupid does offer a free trial. That way, you can check out the singles on the site before you decide to pay the small fee for a membership. For us it’s important to find members who will enjoy our site, so this is our way of making sure we do so!

Whether you are looking for senior, twenty-something, or gay dating, Edinburgh’s #1 dating site, has what you're looking for. Fun, flirtatious, serious, gay, or lesbian dating - Edinburgh has it all!
