Great bargains to be had, especially Scottish tartans/whisky. Plenty of cafes to choose from. Good to leave the other half there eating or drinking while you shop in peace.

The Royal Mile from the Castle to Holyrood is a marvellous collection of historic buildings at any time but during the Festival it is buzzing with visitors from all over the world being canvassed by armies of Fringe performers often in costume extolling the virtues of their shows.

Just a fabulous, historic place. Loads of eateries and shopping, street performers and fun. The Castle is worth a tour and the scenic views from above are fabulous. Have been twice and will go again (from USA).

Our apartment was on the Royal Mile. Lots to see and do, lots to learn about. We enjoyed the John Knox house, loved Edinburgh Castle, and the view from the top of the street down toward Holyrood House.
