    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-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers

    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
