A Little About This Space

The site of a market since the 15th century, today the Grassmarket is lined with independent shops, restaurants and pubs, continuing its tradition as a vibrant city centre hub. In the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, and facing out onto Grassmarket Square, this shop to rent (ground floor only) will place you and your idea in one of the city’s most-visited areas.


This is one of the liveliest parts of the city – tourists come to see The White Hart Inn (where Robert Burns used to stay), shop for gifts and soak up the Old Town’s atmosphere. Locals come here to buy vintage clothes at W. Armstrong & Son, and watch the world go by over a pint. The square’s many pubs and eateries are a big draw in the evenings, and every Saturday crowds come to check out the weekly food and crafts market. Edinburgh Waverley station is a 15-minute walk.


You’ll be next door to Edinburgh Kiltmakers, the site of many a souvenir purchase, and near The Fiddler’s Arms, a traditional pub which hosts local musicians every weekend.
