Sheep Heid Inn

Located just outside Edinburgh, at the foot of Arthur’s Seat, this traditional pub is Scotland’s oldest surviving public house, established in 1360. Sit by the fire in winter or make yourself comfortable in the hidden courtyard during the warmer summer months.

Bars & Nightlife

From traditional pubs offering real ales and leafy beer gardens to upmarket cocktail bars, Edinburgh's bars and pubs are second to none. This thriving, modern capital city is as renowned for its nightlife as its history, so whether you're looking for top comedy, a traditional ceilidh — a Gaelic gathering with folk music and dancing — or an unforgettable club night, you are sure to find it here. Join the student crowd in Cowgate, drink whisky in upper-market George Street, or head to the more raffish Lothian road: the choice is yours!
