Edinburgh pub: The Last Drop
our visit in 2009, it seems that the pub is now under new management. It is run by Nicolson's pubs (the same chain as the Kenilworth). The decor and menu seem mostly unchanged (though I think they might be different from when we lived in Edinburgh.)
Irn Bru, "Scotland's other national drink". Irn Bru, like Coke, is less sweet than a lot of soft drinks and contains caffeine. It is reputedly more popular than coca cola in Scotland. Needless to say, Sylvia loved the stuff.
We had a look in at Avalanche records store which has moved from Cockburn Street to the Grassmarket, and we were interested to see that the pub on the corner of the West Port had changed from a modern Scottish (Bar Alba) to more traditional style (The Fiddler's Arms). While shops and bars come and go, the Grassmarket remains a place I love to visit for both history and nostalgia.
