There are a number of legendary Edinburgh institutions which serve delicious homemade pies. We want to champion our local businesses after the tough time they’ve had.
So we asked our readers on our Facebook page the best places to order a pie in Edinburgh – from butchers, to bakers, to homely pubs. These are their recommendations for the ultimate Scottish pie experience in the Capital.
