Edinburgh named takeaway capital of Scotland as poll singles out ‘toxic cities’
As someone who's lived a few years in Auld Reekie, I can attest to the city's forbidden lure of high-fat take-out goods.EDINBURGH may be Scotland’s capital city, but it has also emerged as the country’s undisputed fast-food takeaway capital.
