By Paul James-Griffiths

The writer Tobias Smollett once said: 'Edinburgh is a hot bed of genius.' And the centre of that hotbed is the Royal Mile (High Street) and its sidestreets. Stretching for a mile from the Castle at the top to the Holyrood Palace at the bottom, this street has impacted the world in a way that is truly extraordinary. Indeed, it has been a hotbed of spirituality and philosophy that has shaped the globe.
