Beautiful restaurant. Be sure to equest the garden room. Candlelit interior. Delicious food. Great service. Call in advance to ensure you can get a reservation. Very romantic setting and quiet atmosphere.
I travel a lot for work, and typically I stay in a functional business hotel—nothing to write home about. For my first time in Edinburgh, though, I wanted to stay somewhere memorable, at least for the last few nights. Mission accomplished!

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.
