St John the Evangelist

St John’s was dedicated as St John’s Chapel in 1818, with a construction start date of 1816. William Burn, its architect, completed its design when he was only 25.

I remember that when I first found out about this church, it came with a piece of advice that I find very important to pass on: look up.

The plaster ceiling vault is apparently inspired by the Henry VII Chapel in Westminster Abbey, which has now made it to the top of my list for places to visit next.

Red Squirrel

I mainly came to this place because I really wanted to try haggis, but eating sheep’s pluck encased in its stomach and being a vegetarian don’t really go that well together. This meant I had to find a veggie option and Red Squirrel delivered.

Am I a fan? Not really, to be honest, but I’m glad that I was able to try it, at the very least!
