We were staying nearby and decided to have a quick bite to eat locally. The restaurant is small and narrow but makes up for that in its charm and authenticity. The staff were very attentive and even made us some aioli even though it wasn’t...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
