“Overpriced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Went for Hogmany celebrations and found the atmosphre and fireworks really good.
However let down by insufficent toilets and overpriced drinks.

“The Hogmanay place to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

The 2012 Keilidh was a hoot - almost surreal. If you haven't done it, make sure it's on your "100 Things To Do Before I Die" list.

“Princes Street Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I live in Edinburgh, so perhaps a bit biased, I love to relax just walking around, knowing there are thousands of people just yards from you doing their shopping. In the summer there are sometimes entertainers doing their thing.

“An oasis of relative tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

This area of garden, right in the middle of Edinburgh is a fantastic place to chill out and escape from the rush of Princes Street.
