Scotland, Edinburgh Guide (B): Pubs on 'n Around Royal Mile in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a vibrant city with abundant nightlife and no shortage of places to go after dusk. The Royal Mile alone, in the very heart of Edinburgh, is laden with character spots craving to be discovered by the first time visitors to the city. This is the highlight of some of the most notable bars and pubs on and around the Royal Mile. A fantastic array of places with their own atmosphere and personalities.

The Beehive Inn sits in the historic part of Edinburgh City since as early as 1860, boasting a fantastic view of the Castle. The 2-storey building houses a bar and a comfy sitting area that is often used for private parties and family events. The wooden clad interior invites visitors to sit back and enjoy a great selection of drinks, as well as fabulous food (hand-battered fish and chips, British beef pie paired with 1730 special pale ale gravy are just some of the delights on offer). A truly great pub in a dramatic location!

Part of Edinburgh's historic Grassmarket, The White Hart Inn has been in place since 1128. Its history is said to have something to do with an incident involving King David I while hunting down a white stag; hence the name. To learn more about it, make sure to attend one of the pub's folk music nights where singers can reveal more of the inn's and the city of Edinburgh's turbulent past. The majority of the building dates back to the 16th century; the rest was added in the 18th. Other than the great ambiance and friendly atmosphere, the place greets customers with a rich variety of real ales (Belhaven IPA, 80 Shilling, and Dark Island) and malt whiskies. It is much quieter here during a week than on the weekends. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
