Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh is a compact city, and so it is easy to see the sights on foot, but a private walking tour provides a group with a greater insight into the history, culture and traditions of Scotland’s capital city while passing some of the city's famous sights. The tour takes you along The Royal Mile, a treasure chest of historic gems just waiting to be opened. The guide will unfold the history of this fascinating street and reveal its unique place in the development of the Scottish nation, how the Royal Mile received its name and explore all its nooks and crannies!! The guide will then accompany you to Edinburgh Castle. In its dominating position overlooking the city, the grandeur and historical significance of Edinburgh Castle has made it a globally famous icon of Scotland and part of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site. This instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol and its story is Scotland's story.  You will have a private tour with a guide to explore this proud and majestic symbol of Scotland. Unmissable highlights of Edinburgh Castle’s wealth of treasures are the crown jewels, The Honours of Scotland, which are amongst the oldest in Europe and The Stone of Destiny.  You can also enjoy the view from the Castle overlooking the capital city.
