Stretching south from the Old Town and taking in the 19th-century tenements of Tollcross, Bruntsfield, Marchmont and Sciennes (pronounced 'sheens'), and the upmarket suburbs of Newington, Grange and Morningside, this is a peaceful residential neighbourhood of smart Victorian flats and spacious garden villas. There's not much by way of tourist attractions, but there are many good restaurants, cafes and pubs.
