    The List

    by clivedinburgh Written Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The List is a comprehensive annual guide to eating in Central Scotland. Hardcopies are available in most newsagents and I have always found the reviews to be accurate depictions of the various venues & food.

    Great Pubs and History

    by Laverock Written Jul 31, 2005
    Edinburgh from helicopter

    Favorite thing: Mary King's Close under the City Chambers is an old Close (lane) which was built over years ago and gives a wonderful insight into the old city. Scary, amusing, atmospheric and curiously touching

    Fondest memory: The best memory is walking along the Dean Path in the snow. What I miss most is the skyline.

    Favorite thing: I would recommend doing the Literary Pub Tour... It is not just a drink fest, but actually a pretty cool tour around downtown Edinburgh which takes you to some pubs and the two tour guides (who are hilarious) tell stories of Edinburgh's famous poets, novelists.. I thoroughly enjoyed it... met some Danish people on the tour and we went to one of the pubs afterwards to listen to the live music that some band had been playing when we had left...

    Fondest memory: Many of the pubs you will notice will have many bands, etc practicing inside and drinking beer... It is usually traditional type Scottish music too and really excellent... This was definitely a charming part of the visits to the pubs...

    Favorite thing: This is a pub on Rose Street. I went to Rose Street almost every night to check e-mail. I am so addicted, it's sad. The place to go is called EasyEverything. It's around 1 pound for 1 1/2 hours, but depends on the time of day for some reason.

    Favorite thing: Spend the night on Arthur's Seat.

    Take time to get to know the city by foot.

    Waste hours in the very relaxed cafes.

    Fondest memory: I was a student In Edinburgh and spent three of the happiest years of my life there.

    The city is made for young people and the Old Town, in particular, has a great variety of sites, beautiful buildings, cafes, restaurants and bars/clubs.

    Unlike the rest of the UK, Edinburgh does not suffer from draconian licensing laws: its quite possible to go to a bar about ten and leave at sunrise (in the summer!).

    Fondest memory: There are so many pubs in Edinburgh that there would be no excuse not to find a good place to hang out and have a few pints. While in the city, I met a couple travellers, Greg (NZ) and Joe (U.S.) and we went to a few pubs on a couple of occasions.
