    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest

    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
