Hunter Square

A little alcove of the Royal Mile that is frequently home to an itinerant community of local characters and the odd student.


Hunter Square is one of those places people arrange to meet on their way to somewhere else although there is quite a population who just seem to spend their day there hanging out and doing very little. It is a cross-over point or junction between the tourist tat of the Royal Mile and the hidden jewels of the Old Town. The Tron Pub the studenty anchor point of the square and at every point of the compass there is a cafe, bar or restaurant. Hidden down the side streets are all manner of little arts cafe or craft bookshop.
