Lovely environment, interesting walks and alleys, fascinating architecture with a classy environment.
from a quck Pork Sarnie from Oink to a stroll around Grey Friars Graveyard. not something expected of a romantic few days but we enjoyed it anyway.
Love the quirky little shops and interesting buidlings. Its quite a walk so take comfy shoes! There are some really lovely pubs in the area for a quiet drink on your travels.
The Royal Mile has gotten very touristy-- lots of shops selling kilts, shortbread, and cheap whisky. But nevertheless it's still awesome to see the old medieval buildings compared to the "New Town" that followed it.
apart from the tourist shops that blight the Royal Mile, all owned by the same family. Please look into the small alleys, or closes, on each side, you will be richly rewarded.
The fantastic architecture and the history of the area is wonderful and not only that they clearly maintain the town really well, it's worth a visit to soak up some historic Scottish culture
We went to Edinburgh town in summers while on our way to glasgow from Skye. We had limited time and wanted to see the best of this lovely city. The town itself is very well maintained and takes you back in time. We thoroughly enjoyed walking through the streets and would love to visit again. (the parking's quite expensive though!)
A really great venue, worth the time spent. Nice to see how the locals lived. The shop was well stocked. Great docent
Since the middle ages there has always been something happening daily on the Royal Mile. Now, as then, there are usually street performers(especially on the weekends). You cal also sample all the tourist shops and some good restaurants and pubs.
