October is my favorite month for many reasons (crisp fall weather, autumn colors, apple cider, and All Hallows Eve, to name a few), so it is fitting that our first visit to my favorite city would take place in October just like it did back when we were in Edinburgh in 2008. And for all you Harry Potter fans out there, Hogwarts is without a doubt located in Scotland…there are little HP “inspirations” near J.K. Rowling’s writing haunts all over Edinburgh!
