Royal Mile

Recommended
The main street of the old town runs from the castle following the coast road towards the Abbey and the palace. Daniel Defoe wrote of the street, at the beginning of the 18C, «It's probably the largest longest and most beautiful street, not just in England, but in the whole world ». the few original buildings still in tact enable us to conjure up an image of Medieval Edinburgh.
