On our recent visit, walking around some streets on the Saturday afternoon was pretty horrible and two Edinburgh residents we met claimed to rarely go into the city at weekends because of it. The problem I saw however was around the Rose Street area whereas this possible ban would cover the Grassmarket on the opposite side of town.
