My Edinburgh Greg Sinclair

My first Edinburgh festival experience was …
Desperately collecting as many fliers as possible on the Royal Mile when I was a wee boy.

Edinburgh’s unique selling point is …
Its beauty: architecture, landscape, people, culture.

I am likely to be found …
In and around Summerhall.

My favourite place to eat is …
The Mosque Kitchen for great curry, Palmyra for the best falafel wrap in Edinburgh, or Saigon Saigon – but go for the dim sum menu rather than the all-you-can-eat buffet.

My favourite place to drink is …
Leith pubs are best and a wee bit quieter during the festival. Boda on Leith Walk is a favourite.

Best spot to get away from the festival madness …
Jupiter Artland.

Edinburgh’s little-known gem is…
The Innocent Railway. It’s pretty cool that there’s an extinct volcano in the middle of Edinburgh, and it’s way cooler when you learn that there’s a secret tunnel under it!

The best thing about the Edinburgh festival is …
This massive international festival is all about art and culture – that side of government policies around the world that often gets cut …

The worst thing about the Edinburgh festival is …
It’s pretty pricey these days, eh?

One day I will …
Be super organised and buy tickets for shows before they sell out.

Greg Sinclair’s I Do, Do I is as Summerhall, 0856 874 3001, until 24 Aug (not 19), 11.05am, £10 (£6).
