Does anyone know why the Albion in George Street (another entrance on the sea-side) has Tartan on the walls?

Thanks cbe - my brother on a visit wondered if it was connected with the Younger's Brewery.
There were two by that name in Edinburgh, but one was more famous.
I notice that the Observer uses the name 'Youngs', I expect that was a typo.

More on The Royal Albion (in 2016 the 'Royal' was dropped):

OP

As I've said once or twice, because I do a lot of walking I get around quite a lot, and it never ceases to amaze me how people can eat their fish 'n chips al fresco when it's freezing cold, or there's a chill wind blowing even though there are plenty of tables inside the establishments. I mean for one thing, nothing gets colder faster than fish and chips, and nothing less appetising than cold fish and chips. 'Tis indeed a puzzlement.

I saw - or rather heard - another dog fracture a hip a few days ago while it was chasing a tennis ball launched from one of those plastic throwing devices. Why the hell do these people think their dogs need to run?

Oops, wrong forum - sorry! :oops:
