“Nice little bridge but not so relevant.”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

In the heart of the historic center of the city this is a small and modest bridge where a road goes underneath it, beautiful setting among the stunning and architecturally relevant buildings but in my opinion is not to be placed among the top attraction of the city.

“Busy in August”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

an interesting collection of bars, cafes and restaurants. However being the home to the infamous Elephant house (Harry Potter was written there) and Greyfriars Bobby makes this street a nightmare come peak festival season (Aug)

“Great location”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

This is a great location for exploring the city centre. Royal Mile is nearby along with Grassmarket/Cowgate. You won't be dissappointed.
