Stunning views, lots of history, friendly people, and best place in the world to shop for a tartan scarf. Or probably anything tartan.

This is a true walking tour of a classic old Scottish town. Ditch the buss, and enjoy the walk, You won't regret it.

Lots of quaint shops and sights especially with the Edinburgh Castle in the background.
Many restaurants and cafes.
Better than the Royal Mile in my opinion.

Edinburgh Old Town is absolutely amazing; it would be crazy not to visit it while in the capital of Scotland!
