The Jolly Judge
If authentic pub aesthetics are a priority in your choice of watering-hole, this is the place to go. It's got a wood burning fire, a low, exposed beam ceiling, minimal daylight, a good selection of whiskeys and old men. Fine establishments like these call for long sessions but, unfortunately, this wee pub's fatal flaw is that it doesn't take full advantage of Scotland's licensing laws, unnecessarily closing a good two hours before most pubs. If you're able to put this transgression aside, it's a great little (and we mean this literally) place.
