“Hit the Pubs”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Excellent group of pubs along the Royal Mile. Hit two or three and then go grab some food. Suggest you only have one drink at each pub though.

Fairly nice walk. Lot's of shops, sadly it's only touristshops that sell the same stuff. During the walk you pass a lot of restaurants and a church. When the sun shines, or may I say IF the sun shines, it's a very lovely walk.

“A jewel in the crown!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Royal Mile is the jewel in Edinburgh's quite impressive crown. The architecture is impressive, really old street walks and intriguing little alleyways between every couple of shops. Always loads of street performances and novelty acts going on. Bagpipes, over excited tourists and the magnificent castle at the top end.

Always a great atmosphere.

Open spaces with quality shops and beautiful architecture, makes shopping a pleasure again. Streets punctuated with bistros and coffee shops.
