you'll have a hard time finding any in edinburgh during the festival
>What's it like?
great. there really is something for everyone, and i'm not being hyperbolic. it can be a bit overwhelming. 90% of the acts/shows are utter shite. the 10% of quality content is more than a enough.
if it's free, it's probably shite.
>Any tourist spots besides the castle?
Climb arthur's seat and watch the sunset/sunrise, go to the medical museum at surgeons hall, go to sandy bell's or the royal oak on infirmary street and listen to impromptu folk music, wander in the old towns cemeteries and closes' in the wee hours with a drink in you, marvel at the history.
Eat breakfast at Snax. There's an all night bakery in newington (edinburgh bakehouse), and another in the west end, on morrisons street (morrisons bakery). Better than a kebab. There used to be one along gorgie too but i'm sure that's closed now.
