We picked here to eat when we had four kids with us, the food hall has plenty of options for those kids who all want something different to eat. McDonald’s, KFC, Spudulike, Pizza, Noodle bar and a little cafe. So as far as food choices...More

Went for pizza today and I can only describe the girl serving as rude and uninterested. The service was so bad I told her to keep the pizza and walked away.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
