    Attractions

    Cardigan Castle

    Lovely old Castle and cheap to get in. Not much to it so don't expect a big castle as this is more of ruins than anything.

    An outdoor activity company that can offer you a whole spectrum of activities to have a go at from sea and river kayaking, surfing, rafting, coasteering and more..

    Places To Eat

    Souli

    Reminding the world that the sandwich was Britain's greatest contribution to the culinary arts - and the British can still make them as good as anyone. Souli also do great coffee and their other food looks nice too - but it is the sandwiches you want to go for. The fillings are varied but none will disappoint. It is a bit more expensive than your average takeaway lunch, but you certainly get what you pay for!

    Iain J Mellis Cheesemongers

    The famous Edinburgh deli is also in Edinburgh. Great for picking up something for a picnic or dinner. The smell of cheese literally drifts out the front door tempting you in! Highly recommend!

    Lovely rustic cafe up a farm track just outside Falkland. Great farm shop with a lot of variety.

    Laura Thomas

    Great place to eat and drink with a brilliant outdoor seating area across the road right on the beach. In the summer months a bbq is going where you can buy 110% scottish beef burgers and drink beer in the sun.

    Laura Thomas

    Great wine bar and gastro pub food. Great for a pit stop while shopping along George Street.

    Traveller Tips

    Book Well in Advance for August

    If visiting Edinburgh in August it is a must to book well in advance. The population of Edinburgh more than doubles during August.
    Said so often by Edinburgh residents it has taken on a mythic quality, this fun fact is actually true as the city swells in size to accommodate performers, thinkers, artists, and their very welcome audiences.
