Didn't get to see much of the gardens as it was Christmas time and setting up for Hogmany had started, from what we could see it looked nice.

The Princess Street Gardens are really close to the Princess Street itself. You can easily go into the gardens and relax after a few hours of shopping. It's really green and full of live.
One of my favourite facts about the Gardens: You can see the old town!
Totally worth a visit.

German market, ice rink, made it all feel very festive. Great hot dogs. Be careful of pick pockets. Good to see people keeping the place tidy by not throwing litter around.
