We had an afternoon at the college of art with our 5 year old granddaughter and it was great. She had an amazing time doing experiments in science and 3hrs just whizzed by. The staff were helpful and included her all activities.

If they will let you in to see them. View the reproduction paster casts of antiquarion sculptures. Arguable the best collection of its type in the UK bar none.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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 place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
