The Grassmarket  

The Grassmarket square is located in the heart of Edinburgh's old town. It is a broad and leafy square that has been a market place for nearly 500 years. 

 

The Grassmarket was the place for many an execution in medieval times and where the body snatchers Burke and Hare carried out the  trade in the 19th century. Thankfully, today it is more famous as the place people meet before going on a night out and it has some fine restaurants, shops, hotels, and pubs. The west side of the square is dominated by the castle rock while its east entrance leads out up Victoria street to the Royal mile.
