The sounds of traditional scotch music by street musicians , the middle-aged buildings, all kind of shops and the whole atmosphere is going to give a really memorable experience of you visit the old Town.
This is THE place to see just about every aspect of Edinburgh history from murderers, radicals and invaders to royalty. There is something for everyone and quite a maze of streets and alleyways. Lots of the older attractions are here along with bustling, cosmopolitan tourists....More
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.
