Princes Street has everything from history to the now. Not keen on the homeless around what seemed every corner but its a major city and it happens everywhere

All the shops and boutiques are along this street. Edinburgh only has about 500,000 residents and it seems they all are on Princes St. Beware the homeless, as they tend to set up shop along this road looking for tourists to drop a few pence...More

One of the Busiest streets in Edinburgh. Shops and history combined. Stop in at Jenners for a look see. Trolley construction on street makes for confusion.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
