“Also in an old converted church (and just around the corner) you can give rope rock climbing a go. If you prefer to climb without ropes, there's a sister bouldering centre called Alien Bloc in the Canonmills area of Edinburgh.”

Climbing Gym
“Climbing wall constructed in a vaulted church building, this is a cool activity if you are looking for something outside of the typical tourist sights. You can purchase a day entry pass. Hire equipment is also available. There are two venues, 'alien 1' is primarily for roped climbing both top-roping and leading; 'alien 2' is a dedicated bouldering centre nearby where the climbing is done over soft, 'crash' matting. Alien 2 is located at 37 W Bowling Green St, EH6 5NX.”

Fish & Chips Shop

“New restaurant with great ratings, the extra crispy Fish and Chips here are one of the most talked about in the past year. Seafood also.
