The City of Edinburgh is made up of many distinct and vibrant neighbourhoods, each with an individual look, feel and personality.
With over 200 vegan-friendly establishments in Scotland’s capital, we thought it would be more manageable to split these up into 11 of Edinburgh’s separate districts. Let’s get ready to explore…
