This one street in the last ten years has attracted a wave of small independent shops, bars, restaurants and cafes all concentrated in one area: Sample homemade veggie haggis in an traditional Victorian pub, Scottish gin tasting in the coolest kilt shop then home cured salmon and mackerel pate, then marshmallows made on the premises and a New Town scone jam and cream in a vintage tea shop, finished off with a single malt in a cellar bar.
Stockbridge has always been a village in its own right, sitting very comfortably on the Water of Leith, yet only ten minutes from the hustle and bustle of Princes Street. We start with Scottish smoked salmon and locally roasted coffee then a gentle stroll along the Water of Leith with cameras trained for otters and swans. Then a stroll through the village for organic chocolate, Scottish cheeses, then a single malt in a former Georgian horse mews.
Start the tour with a doughnut out the oven and a locally roasted coffee then a gentle stroll along the Water of Leith for cheese tasting and a visit to the picturesque Stockbridge market with tastings than as its Sunday a sherry and a tapas with time to return to the Market to browse
Using our knowledge and contacts in Edinburgh we can create a food-centric experience tailored to your group’s unique food and drink preferences. We can cater from the minimum of two to thirty two. We have enjoyed a hen night for 30 hens in pith helmets! A Dutch group requested food and music and they were met on arrival by a piper and drummer in full tartan regalia.
