"Truth be told, the New Town doesn't get much love. It's pretty hard to compete with a hilltop castle, after all, but overlook this district at your peril. Focusing on its history and architecture north of Princes Street, everything from extravagant Georgian neoclassic townhouses and blink-and-miss-them private gardens, you'll discover a side to the city few ever see."
