Housed in a gorgeous Georgian building, Howies Waterloo Place sits at the foot of Calton Hill at the east end of Princes Street. Built in 1815 to celebrate the Battle Of Waterloo, the sense of history is tangible. High ceilings and original period features are the background to Howies contemporary Scottish style. After our lunch we'll enjoy an evening in the city.
