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

We popped in to Hebrides for a quick drink after a visit to the Dungeons opposite. It is obviously a bar for the locals as the bar person loudly explained to bar flies how stupid she thought people were coming to the festival and wasting...More

Very disappointed in the bar staff he wasn't very pleasant and never off his phone. The Hebrides was always a pub me and my husband liked to visit when in Edinburgh sadly I won't be back

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!

Popped into the Hebrides for a pint, was disappointed to see that the barman spent the whole 20 minutes on his phone sat in the corner behind the bar. Never made any engagement to make a conversation and even more annoying he had the volume...More

Yet again visit the Hebrides at lunchtime.... and AGAIN the person behind the bar leaves the bar to shove money into the bandit as I approach the bar for another drink. Does no one teach these morons what the priority is when serving customers. Will...More

Great bar for a pint if you're in town. Always friendly locals to chat to and have had a few very interesting conversations here. Great atmosphere for a post work dram and tends to be more of a locals crowd than the usual Edinburgh city...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
