Ghillie Dhu – design pub in Edinburgh

Located close to the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road, just below the Edinburgh Castle, it looks just an ordinary old stone-house characteristic of the New Town area.  However, as soon as you enter a different atmosphere awaits: the old features like wooden beams and exposed stone walls nicely blend in with the contemporary design. There is a big area in front of the bar to take standing crowds on busy nights, but there are also secluded little boxes for those who want more privacy. The food is great, with typical Scottish dishes like huggies along with the usual Brit pub food, and there is a wide selection of local and international beers and other drinks. Having a few pints you sure will have to visit the bathroom – the men having an opportunity to do it in buckets. An interesting and trendy pub for sure, a few steps off the main tourist path.
