Royal Mile in Edinburgh

Shopping in Edinburgh is not all tartans, haggis and whiskey but if that’s what you’re looking for then head for the Royal Mile [map].

Taking a stroll down the Royal Mile you can combine the top tourist activities of sightseeing and souvenir seeking into one easy trip.

One of the oldest streets in the city, the Royal Mile connects Edinburgh Castle with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and as you travel from one end to the other you will find souvenirs a-plenty.

After learning the tricks of the trade at the Tartan Weaving Mill And Exhibition you can purchase kilts, scarves or even a full three-piece suite at one of the various suppliers on the Mile, although there are tartan sellers all over the city.

For a drop of the ‘water of life’ you could organise a whisky tasting at the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre or simply purchase from the wide range of whiskies at the very aptly named Royal Mile Whiskies.

The most popular souvenirs of Scotland are tartan, whisky, haggis, shortbread, salmon, kippers and Edinburgh Crystal, most of which can be found on the Mile. And for those with a sweet tooth – you’ll find Edinburgh rock here too.
