Edinburgh has traditionally been a centre for brewing and it’s not short of pubs, many of which have retained their old style charms.
In the Lawnmarket, at the top of the Royal Mile you can glimpse a small sign for the Jolly Judge pub.
Not just a pub. If you’re in need of a wee refreshment on a hot summer day – yes we do have them – then try out the Jinglin’ Geordie public house in Fleshmarket Close, just off the High Street.
In the 16th Century the citizens of Edinburgh authorised the building an extensive wall to protect the city after the disaterous defeat at the Battle of Flodden. Know as the Flodden Wall little now exists but at Forrest Road just along from the Greyfriars Bobby statue you can find the site marking the last remaining section.
A section of wall is just visible from Lauriston Place, in the grounds of George Heriots School on the righthand side.
