Great vibe and enjoyed our night out in stramash. Sat upstairs and got the benefit of a reasonably quiet bar. Only issue would be the cost of the drinks were quite high. Not a cheap night out!

Stopped in for dinner and a drink and got some very good Scottish Ceilidh music, which I had never heard before. The Highlander Burger was big, good and different because it had haggis on it and a good amount of fries. I liked it. Very...More

We had so much fun in Stramash, the band was excellent and every staff member was friendly and welcoming. If you like live music this is a must visit venue when in Edinburgh!

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
