Dr. Johnson tablet, Boyd's Entry
An inscribed stone in a narrow lane off St. Mary's Street marks the site of the inn where Dr. Samuel Johnson spent his first night in Edinburgh before embarking on 'A Journey To The Western Islands Of Scotland' with James Boswell.

"Do you like our Scots broth, Dr. Johnson?"
"Ah! Very good for hogs, I believe."
"Then let me help you to a little more."
