Walked right by it the first time past, and we were looking for it. I think the listing may have been a bit outdated at the time. Fun if you're a fun, and a neat shop to walk through. But most items available in other...More

Such a cute little shop. It was like stepping into a shop that would have been on Diagon Alley with the exposed brickwork, rickety sounding stairs. Very small in terms of where you can walk especially as it was so busy and there's a photo...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
