Our Walking Tours of Scotland

Half day walking tours of Edinburgh

Meet you at your city centre accommodation and take you on a walking tour of Edinburgh’s Old or New Town telling you stories about the characters that bring it to life as well as telling you about how people lived through the centuries and the buildings that exist.

We can finish at Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, Palace of Holyrood house or at any other central location, thus enabling you to continue discovering more of Edinburgh.

We limit walking tours to 15 guests for health & safety reasons and to be able to give a more personalised tour, especially during busy summer months when some sites can be very busy.

Full day walking tours of Edinburgh

As above but we have more time to see some beautiful internal and external architecture of the New Town of Edinburgh, visit the closes of the Old Town, go on a Harry Potter exploration, take you on a guided tour of Edinburgh Castle or the Palace of Holyroodhouse (entrance fees not included) and give you a more in-depth insight into what makes Edinburgh tick.

Glasgow walking tour

This can be tailored to the amount of time you have available.  Come and see the impressive mural trail dotted all across the city or see buildings and streets that were part of the expansion of Glasgow due to trade with The Colonies in the 18th century.

We could also take you on a Charles Rennie Mackintosh tour of Glasgow.  For a more modern themed tour, take a food & drink inspired tour of Glasgow.
