This is actually an interesting attraction from a certain perspective. From the outside, this gift store complex by the entrance to Edinburgh Castle does not look large, but it is actually a sprawling complex which goes down some distance below street level into this large...More

The entrance looks like it will be a small shop but once you enter one realizes it is a really big store. There are four levels below the main floor and one above. The selling space is huge with lots and lots of clan-related merchandise...More

Tartan is just outside the Edinburgh Castle and the building is magnificent as there are so many floors (like six) in the ground and don't worry, it won't give you any claustrophobia, I guarantee! Yes, I want every men's clothing in there for me, myself...More

Keep over an hour to walk through the different floors - exquisite cashmere products as well as traditional souvenirs. Don't miss the floor that has the Harry Potter merchandise - kids would absolutely go bonkers. The staff can be a bit more helpful.

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
