Came here for the gin and cheese tasting and it was fabulous. This is all done downstairs and the best bit - the gins were all from Scotland so they kept it local. Cheeses were good, our host, Neil was a quirky individual but very...More

Who’d have thought gin and cheese went so well together! Yes, Neil did say if he had a pound for every time he’d heard that! A great host and a fab couple of hours! Highly recommended for all those gin lovers out there!

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
