    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
    this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
    visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
    that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
    place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
