In general, it seems that a Scotsman somehow feels the need to get drunk pretty fast and early. This is due to the fact that pubs mainly close pretty early, which means around 1 am. Consequently, pubs are already full and crowded around 7 pm. While wandering through the crowded streets full of bag-carrying customers in haste time seems more precious because of shops closing their doors at 6 pm. Time travelling begins when passing extrovert, young, fancy-clothed students and when short skirted, highheels wearing, laughing girls cross your way – ready to party. For some tourists this might be a pretty new and unusual experience – but don´t worry – although it might seem like it is already somewhat after 11 pm your watch truly is set at the right time, and it really is just 7 pm, and yes: these loud, eccentric, joking and laughing drunken people ARE definitely drunk. Lucky the one who gets to know the Scotsmen on a Friday! This is the day to observe suited Businessmen drinking lots of pints of beer during their lunch break with the purpose to get drunk in order to be prepared for the evening. The purpose of a pub crawl – next to getting drunk – is to spend the night in as many pubs as possible. Unsurprisingly, each pub has its own flair and its own party-attendees so that you see and (if you want to) talk to a big variety of younger as well as older people partying, all of them in a good mood and willing to share a drink with you. There are crowded and busy pubs as well as more chilling and cosy pubs. Traditional, old-fashioned as well as modern and plain pubs. Smaller as well as bigger ones – younger as well as older ones – loud as well as calmer ones. Moreover, there are the ones which are more trendy and the ones which are rather alternative. There are the ones which offer live music (whether it is Jazz, Rock, Indie or Folk) and there are the ones with a Jukebox, a DJ or a CD. And last but not least there are the ones with Karaoke (mostly on Friday night e.g. Rose Street, Waterloo Place)! You see – all in all it is pretty unlikely for anybody to get bored while being on a pub crawl in Edinburgh. However, sometimes it indeed happens that one of the group members is not satisfied with the choice of current pub and therefore wants to move on. In this case this person should be tolerant and fair enough to wait until the group moves on, which will happen – depending on how fast the group drinks their beer or whisky – quite soon. Keep in mind that there are tons of other pubs waiting to be explored by you!I

Rule °1: Start your tour early and don´t feel bad about it! Keep in mind that it might end early as well and pubs are closing early (1 am).
Rule °2: Just stay for one drink.
Rule °3: Be tolerant and fair – you do not like this pub? The next one is already waiting for you! It will not be long until you get there…
Rule °4: Keep an eye on pubs in the basement! It would be such a shame to miss them because you just have not recognised them.
Rule °5: Be aware of the fact that dairy shops are not allowed to sell alcohol after 10 pm.
Rule °6: Try to crawl in a homogenous group with similar interests – that is a lot easier and surely more fun! And keep in mind: there is a pub for everyone´s interest.
Rule °7: Do not expect to get a seat at the table – be satisfied with standing at the bar next to an old Scotsman.
Rule °8: There are pubs with live music, pubs with a dance floor in the back and there are clubs to go afterwards as well.
Rule °9: Clubs mostly do not charge you an entrance-fee before 11 pm.
Rule°10: Do no hesitate checking out royal and expensive looking buildings like The Dome on George Street – these might be pretty cheap pubs to go.

Good places to crawl around: Along Royal Mile – Southbridge – Rose Street – George Street (the place where Prince Harry and Prince William go to Party). You can also attend an organized pub crawl (=£10) which is not just for those of you who travel on their own but for all the ones who want to be part of a big group. On the one hand you will crawl in a group of different tourists from all over the world and with different interests, and on the other hand it is guaranteed that all of them have the same aim: to get to know new people, to have a good and fun time, and of course: to get drunk. Another important fact to mention is that standing at the bar between lots of Scotsmen does not allow you to hold the most serious conversation. But who wants to hold a serious conversation, anyway?
