We tried Haggis, Fish and Chips and the Fishcakes. The plates were well presented and the Haggis were pretty good, but the other two were average. The bar was quite full and the service was slow, it took a long time for our food to...More

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
