    Southside & Holyrood
    Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
    university buildings in Southside, the sort of
    neighbourhood that supports a long string of
    second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
    just a few pounds. In August the student population is
    replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
    for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
    arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
