Just not sure this is worth the money as the red loop is very walkable. Greeter by bus (short hair- sweetie). Driver kept admonishing passengers...it’s all about the tone.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
