There are a lot of bad elements to autumn in Edinburgh: it's cold, wet and windy, and it starts getting dark really early. Thankfully, that's outweighed by the riot of colour that bursts out as the city's trees begin to lose their leaves. Warm yourself with a nice cup of coffee, or wrap up and bag a spot in one of Edinburgh's best beer gardens, and enjoy this last flash of colour before everything goes white. Or, more likely, grey.
