A very nice IPA on tap and in a bottle. Very traditional pub feel. I read the reviews and do not agree. I didn't hear anyone loudly swearing or berating tourists. I live York in the UK but of course that means I am a...More

Called in here for a scoop with the lovely Ursula. Nice traditional bar but it’s spoiled by a big lump of an electronic gaming machine with flashing lights. I’m afraid the clientele were a bit boisterous after too much alcohol so we left after one...More

Dropped in for A few drinks until train home to find pub very busy, barmaid working hard to keep up with orders and young lady providing very good live music for us all. Great atmosphere, enjoyed singing along with music and a good pint.

Upon arrival at Waverley station we headed for one of the nearest watering holes we had previously visited on trips to Edinburgh . The Hebrides is a traditional earthy bar that reminds me of how pubs used to be , it’s quite small/compact and very...More

The pub should be good. It's within spitting distance of the rail station and obviously is ideally situated to catch passing tourist trade with big windows looking onto Market St. Maybe it is good in the height of summer when it's more cosmopolitan but on...More

Been in here a few times over the years and always surprised at how friendly the staff are and they always manage to have live music (normally 1 person with a guitar and an amp) which is excellent!

We visited this nice-looking bar since we were passing and found it to be a most pleasant pub with a friendly and efficient barman, Will. We enjoyed the ambiance until a customer, hearing our English accents, insisted on foisting himself on us. He was drinking...More

We visited the Hebrides for a few drinks during the day and found it to be a nice friendly pub. It is centrally located directly across from the Edinburgh dungeon and Waverly station. The prices were roughly £4 a pint and £4.10 for an alcopops,...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
