The food was good enough, moderate portion sizes, decent service but high prices. The bill is what spoiled the entire experience. The menu clearly states, “service charge will be added to parties of six or more”. Well these crooks added the service charge (10%) without...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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
