Much as I wanted to like this there were things in it that as a native of Edinburgh I found annoying.

The heart in the cobblestones by St Giles is not called the Heart Of Edinburgh it is the Heart Of Midlothian, the river that runs through the city is not the river Leith but the Water of Leith. As for describing Prince's Street as chic all I can say is that it is clearly a long time say they've been along it.
' a typical Scot would never be seen drunk wandering through the streets of Edinburgh for fear of being consigned to eternal damnation imposed by his Calvanist creed.' really, clearly the authors have never been out and about in Edinburgh at the weekend.
