Mighty comfortable restaurant with excellent comfort food prepared with good ingredients. Sassy owner who greets you like a local. Venture just about a block further from the statue of Greyfriar's Bobby to find MUMS.

If you want to taste a typical Scottish dinner I definitely recommend to go there! Big portions, good price and cool atmosphere. The pies are delicious and so is the fish and chips.

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
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
