Shopping on Princes Street certainly isn't a pleasure - the shops are generally mediocre (high street chains you'll see anywhere) and the crowds can be overwhelming. Most disappointing is that despite the street's amazing location -- beside the park, with spectacular views of the castles and the old town - there is no attempt to improve the area. Rather than pedestrianise and encourage street performers, outdoor dining and live music, the council has built a tram straight though the middle of it and sends virtually every bus in the city down this one road. The result is to confine pedestrians to a tiny pavement. A shame.
