In this shop you will find very tasty hand made sweets. It is a must when you visit Edinburgh. The very nice ladys in the shop explain very detailed every different flavour of the fudge. The taste is heavenly. 😊

We tasted a lot of fudge and bought a lot as well. Not only for ourselves but gifts for family and friends. The store assistant was very pleasant, telling us about the different flavours and offering samples.

I have now been to fudge house two years in a row at the Edinburgh Fringe to buy fudge as gifts to take home. There is so much variety here and the fudge is delicious. It’s not too expensive either!

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
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
