My next stop will be in Edinburgh, starting in Mid-June. I've not been, and I want to get the most of my stay there. I'm as excited about this as I've ever been about anywhere. Wikitravel is okay, but I'd love some advice about a good (not too pricey) neighborhood, and things to do. I use airbnb for apartments, unless anyone has a better idea. Thanks for the insight.

 

edited to add: I won't have a car, so easy access by walking or bus appreciated.

i really like morningside. find something within a couple of blocks of morningside rd and it's a quick bus ride or longish walk to princes street. the neighborhood has restaurants and a cinema as well


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

we'll miss you by a few days again. we arrive in edinburgh on the 4th and then leave for parts northern on the 8th.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

by design, mongo.  :)

 

I've booked an airbnb in Morningside for a month (thanks for the tip, Splinky)- near something called Wild West Morningside. Now the more relevant question- where to eat?
