If you like sweet and soft, so many flavors to choose from! We got ten sticks for 16 pound, seems a good buy.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
