When spending a few days in Edinburgh we decided on one night to try local food at a pub. The staff in No. One were very friendly and the food appeared to be freshly prepared and of a high standard.

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
