I stepped into Tempting Tattie on a whim, while taking a walk just off the Royal Mile. I was generously rewarded. I tried their baked potato with haggis and it was doubtless one of the best meals I have had on this trip!! Highly recommend...More

Stayed at Jurry's Inn, found this little eatery around the corner and gave it a try. Best try ever, the potatoes were nice and filling. The owner was very friendly and the family had a nice chat with him, about many things including football.

Awesome tasty filling. Wide variety of fillings available. However the server smoking at front of shop is off putting! Closed on Sundays😬

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
