The Old Tolbooth Wynd dates back to 1591 and is instantly recognisable by its turreted steeple and clock. The Wynd (lane) itself leads off one of the most famous streets in the world - the Royal Mile.
What other mile long street can boast a 10th century castle sitting high on its ancient volcanic rock at one end and a Royal Palace - official residence to Her Majesty the Queen - at the other.
Eating out is easy - there is an abundance of restaurants of all nationalities on your doorstep and within an easy 5 - 10 minute walk. If it's shopping you are after, Princes Street, George Street and St. Andrew Square are all an easy walk and cover the full range of day-to-day shopping right up to designer stores such as Harvey Nicholls.
The Airport shuttle coach service & main line train station are within a 5 - 10 minute walk.
In between there is a multitude of fascinating shops, museums and galleries of all shapes and sizes. Why not try out your Scottish credentials in one of several renowned kilt shops - or just relax and spoil yourself with afternoon tea in Clarinda's Tea Room.
