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

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

I would recommend reservation as it can get really busy. Normally tip around 10-15% of the total cost.

They don't charge service charge. Only if it's a group of 8 or more I think.
