Headed to Edinburgh first week of April and haven’t been before. Planning on staying in the city for 5 days. Typically avoid overtly touristy things and love walking around to explore. Any must try bars/restaurants and things off the beaten path?

Sooooo much to do in Edinburgh. If you want traditional pub. Greyfriars Bobby's Bar. Fun history with cemetery behind it.

So many pubs, you can just walk around for hours and visit all kinds. Look up the "Harry Potter street" also. Great shops and interesting people.

Wee Buddha! It has a medieval feel to it and they do Scottish dancing too!

The Royal Oak and Sandy Bells are amazing for live music every night - and close walking distance between the 2. They do get packed but be patient since people come and go. We went to Royal oak both nights we were in Edinburgh because it was so special

My best friend took a year off work and just traveled around South America with just a backpack and duffle bag of essentials. He spent about $5 to $10 a night at local hostels and food costs cheaper at local restaurants and shops. He spent roughly $500 a month on room and board. Aside from activities like bungee jumping or live sports events, most of the other activities costs little to nothing. Debating on saving up and just escape for a bit just like that.
