The White Horse has been located on the Royal Mile since the 17th century making it the oldest watering hole on the Royal Mile.
6. Deacon Brodie's Tavern
This pub, which has been serving alcoholic beverages since 1806, is named after Deacon William Brodie. He was a respected Edinburgh citizen but by night was the leader of a gang of robbers.
7. The Oxford Bar
Made famous by the Rebus series of novels by Ian Rankin, the Oxford Bar is housed within an original Georgian dwelling. It has served as a public house for many generations.
8. The King's Wark
The building that houses the King's Wark on Leith's Shore dates back to the 1700s. It is steeped in history and it actually sits on foundations which are significantly older and were begun by James I in 1434 to serve as a royal residence.
