          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

          Pool & Spa is completely shut down in March, no access what so ever. When I expressed my disappointment, they told me to jog outside. 🤣
