Nearly in the centre of Edinburgh this lively area of Grassmarket is situated.Very near to Royal Mile,Edinburgh Castle,Greyfriar Bobby and Churchyard.
In the past it used to be the Cattlemarket and a place of Local hangings.Now its an area of great hustle and bustle and life.Many restaurants and pubs are here mainly the Fiddlers Arms, The Whitehart Inn(the oldest pub)and an Irish pub, Biddy Mulligans. It is also the place where many fringe performers can be seen.
Lots of shopping mainly for tea,knitwear can be done.
Also there are good hotels n guest houses to stay at because the area is full of life and near to all main attractions.
