Great place to walk through, have a drink or find something to eat. It’s very close to Edinburgh Castle.

The historic Grassmarket is lined with unique shops and great eateries. In between the Royal Mile and Princes St its the perfect throughway on your tour of Edinburgh. There's a market weekly full of wonders and knickknacks.

Shopping Mall
“If you fancy a spot of shopping during your stay, there's no need to head up to Princes Street. Instead walk 5 minutes along the water front to Ocean Terminal. With a selection of clothing and gift stores, there's also a whole host of restaurants (including a cheeky Nandos - with a view over the open sea), and a Vue cinema. There's a roller-skate rink which has been unfortunately shut due to Covid but hopefully will reopen down the line. ”
