Edinburgh is a fairly safe city. Even at night you do not have to worry about anything most of the time. Be careful in Leith and the surrounding areas though. There is quite a lot of poverty and drug use there so it is advised to keep a rather low profile and preferably not visit alone at night.

Edinburgh is pretty safe
Just take care on Cowgate by night and follow the typical commun cense that everyone should follow in big cities .
