we've been here a few times now, and have never been disappointed. We ate off the set lunch menu rather than the main a la carte one and were really impressed by the quality and value for money. If your looking for somewhere to eat...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-flavored 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

Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
