“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

The Princes Street Gardens are simply spectacular. They are well kept and are a lovely location for a picnic with friends and family. Try and schedule your trip for around 1pm (except a sunday) and you will hear the gun shot from the castle.

“What's not to love?”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The shops on one side, the castle on the other - places to sit & enjoy it all - definitely a favourite place to spend an afternoon! Pick up a sandwich at M&S before hand or get an ice cream from the vendor, & enjoy!

“Nice.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

A nice little place to walk through. It might get a little bit mundane walking down down Prince street but this will take away all the hustle and bustle. Have a stroll and even a picnic. Plenty of benches to sit on and if you look up you'll see the castle! Also a kids play area.

“such a beautiful place”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

rather than taking the footpath along Princes Street, take the garden path instead - it is stunning. It's like there is no main road above, and gets you to the same place - it is so peaceful and beautiful and full of birds and the odd squirrel.
