It still baffles me as to how something so delicious can be so inexpensive. All pies in the store are below £3, and a solid meal can consist of two or three. Which leaves me wondering not only why I was spending £10-£15 per meal,...More

Pies are superb, homemade and baked daily. They taste really good and are very cheap (1,2 to 2,5£). Give the Piemaker a try! (Ps: Cash only)

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
