The Conan Doyle pub In Edinburgh, Scotland is located close to Picardy Place, where the pub's namesake, the great author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, was born on 22nd May 1859. Today, an over life -sized bronze statue of Conan Doyle's greatest creation, Sherlock Holmes, stands opposite his birthplace. The most famous fictional detective is portrayed in meditation on the death of his author. This is a rare gem of a pub and one of my favourite stops when in Edinburgh. Photo: flickr.com/photos/nonky

While the food in The Conan Doyle is above-average pub grub, the main reason to come here is because of its namesake. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born adjacent at Picardy Place on 22nd May 1859. The site is marked by a magnificent statue of his most famous creation, Sherlock Holmes.
