Old Town Walking Tour - FREE




Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but with some very dark secrets. As soon as we arrive our legendary local guide is going to show you the stunning sights - Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, and men in kilts (!), and some of our not-so-well-known favourites - down the mysterious, winding backstreets of Edinburgh's Old Town.

Cost: only £5 FREE (included)

Arthur's Seat Volcano Climb - FREE




Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano. Some say the name comes from the legendary Arthur of Camelot, others think it’s from the phrase "Archer's Seat" because the rock was probably a good place to defend the city from in the Middle Ages. Wherever the name’s from, the view of Edinburgh from the top is amazing, and we're walking up it!
