The American Candy store across from the Rose Street Travellodge has shut too - I was wanting Tamales!

There's another one in the St. James Centre.

So I'll be in Edinburgh for a day and a night next month. Never been to Scotland before, and I know there's lots of Scotch folk on this board. Any must-see, must-do things? Pubs/restaurants/interesting stuff a little off the beaten path?

Any advice greatly appreciated!


How did it go?

Pretty good thanks. Our attempts at exploring on foot got kind of rained off unfortunately, and we were insanely tired for various reasons, but we had a nice day anyway. Ended up retreating to a pub for several whiskeys. Astoundingly beautiful city, friendly people. Must come back for a full proper weekend soon.

And there's a very good American sweet shop on Princes street.

ha! assumed the rain was a given  :D

The weary look of tourists by mid afternoon is always a joy to see: there's always one goading the rest on map in hand, a couple hungover and sh**ged out, and that dazed few at the back with a WTF? look all wrapped up in disposable rain capes, and then there's the Festival...
