  • great brunch of mushrooms, egg and salad in a wrap, called a burrito though I couldn't say if that's an accurate name. Tasty, hot and delicious served in this stylish cafe.  more »

  • Brilliant, exciting gallery in the centre of town. Consistently fascinating exhibitions. It also has a lovely wee cafe - and the gallery shop is brilliant! Such cool stock! Massively recommended.
  • Absolutely the worst exhibition I have ever seen in my life. Of course it is abstract art but literally having a white wall with 2 A4-sized papers with 2 photographed hands is not something I would call art. I have not seen anything interesting at all.
  • A good rotating exhibition space, neat shop, great (if usually busy) cafe
  • Two floors of exhibition, all from one artist at a time. Regular rotations of every exhibit means theres always something new to go and see. Nice cafe and shop also
  • Great exhibitions and book market. The shop is a joy. You must go in the lift (no spoilers)!

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
