This small restaurant has yet to disappoint. Excellent service and food to match. The beef in the bourguignon was melt in the mouth and sauce delicious. Best book to not be disappointed.

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
