Absolutely great food, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Can only recommend. If you are looking for a bit of midleterenean warmth in Scotland you shouldn't miss Gordon's.

This place was very clean and attractively decorated. The food was decent, as was the house wine. The service was excellent.

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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
