Stockbridge and Canonmills are two adjacent districts of Edinburgh. They cover the area immediately to the north of the New Town. The main tourist draw here is the Royal Botanic Garden, but don't miss the eclectic variety of independent shops and some great places to eat and drink. It's also the place to see International cricket matches.
