About
Enjoy a half day walking tour of Edinburgh Old Town and Royal Mile. Edinburgh Old town has a rich and sometimes dark history. Let us guide you through the narrow closes and streets to reach the mighty Edinburgh Castle. This tour is a great introduction to the city. We will walk through the narrow alleyways of the Old Town called closes and learn the meaning of Auld Reekie. We will explore the important sights that have made the town what it is today. This will include the Tron Kirk, Mercat Cross, Heart of Midlothian and St Giles area. Then we go to Greyfriars Kirkyard which was home to Edinburgh's hero dog, Bobby. The Graveyard is also haunted and has connections with Harry Potter. We finally reach the Edinburgh Castle esplanade. Standing on top of an extinct volcano it offers great views of the city and surroundings. Due to Covid restrictions we can not guide inside the castle so we will give you an introduction from the outside and tell you the best way to explore on your own.
