Fall In Love With The Blossom Adorning St Andrew Square

St Andrew Square is a rejuvenating capsule of calm positioned around the city centre hustle and bustle. It’s worthwhile taking a detour through this town square during spring, if only to witness the cherry blossom as it shimmies under the magnificent Scottish sun, and rain! Consider this public garden — with its pretty blossoming plants, reflective pool, mood lighting, Melville Monument, cute café pavilion and curved paths —, a perfect coffee break spot.
