Do the Dram

Whisky Room
7-9 N Bank St, Old Town, Edinburgh, +44 131 225 7224
If, like many travelers, you equate Scotland with Scotch, don’t miss the chance to channel your inner malt maniac at the Whiski Rooms, an atmospheric shop-bar-restaurant in Edinburgh’s old town which features more than 300 by the pour (and even more in the retail shop). The welcoming staff is happy help small groups put together personalized flights or themed tastings—or, should you want to take a bit of the Highlands home with you, suggest a special bottle for a souvenir.

Scot’s Honor

The Kitchin
78 Commercial Quay, Leith, Edinburgh, +44 131 555 1755
Tom Kitchin, the chef/owner of Edinburgh’s acclaimed restaurant The Kitchin, is Scotland’s youngest Michelin starred chef, having received the honor in 2006 at the tender age of 29. Now, eight years later, he and his restaurant are still raking in the accolades, thanks to a passionate commitment to the farm-to-table ethos and a deep belief in the bounty of the Scottish larder—evident in dishes like Arisaig razor clams with chorizo and wild herbs and poached Scrabster monkfish with lobster and broad beans.
