I'm not really sure where you get the idea that Edinburgh is pedestrian friendly?
Got an example?
I work through in Edinburgh quite a bit and the city centre is every bit as bad as Glasgow if you are on foot.
Waterloo Place terrible if you are trying to cross the road.
George Street, you play dodgems with the parked cars in the centre and crossing over.
Don't even get me started on Haymarket and the mess that is the tram works there.
In fairness, I haven't set foot in Edinburgh in 10 years but I think what I mean is that when you walk around the place it's aesthetically pleasing with plenty of people around. Glasgow on the other hand (and only in my opinion) has many sort of dead areas like between the arcade on Argyle Street and St Enoch or up around Georges Cross at the start of the Maryhill Roador around West Street or Bridge Street underground or Port Dundas.
