Tour Edinburgh

A tour of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh has something for everyone. Truly multi-cultural, Edinburgh owns historic and present-day buildings of world renown. The famed Royal Mile links Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House winding past the ultra modern Scottish Parliament on the way.

Edinburgh has one of the most striking cityscapes in the world. As little as 200 years ago, Edinburgh was largely made up of what is now known as the Old Town – ie the Castle, the Royal Mile and the Grassmarket.

Built on top of spectacular Edinburgh Rock (apparently formed 70 million years ago), the Castle houses Scottish Crown Jewels, the Stone of Destiny and the 900 year-old St. Margaret’s Chapel. It also overlooks Princes Street Gardens and the Gothic monument to the memory of Sir Walter Scott.

In August the city buzzes with the excitement of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo & the Edinburgh International Festival.

Its your tour and your time... spent the way YOU want

You might be tempted to go Grail hunting at Rosslyn Chapel, popularised by the success of Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code”.

Visit the Museum of Flight, where you can board Concorde, at East Fortune. At North Berwick you’ll find Tantallon Castle and the impressive Bass Rock. At the Scottish Sea Bird Centre, web cams allow you to watch Puffins, gannets and other sea birds in their natural environment.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is the nearest town to the unspoiled, historic Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Accessible only at low tide, only 150 people live there. Amazingly, they have over 500,000 visitors every year from all over the world. Check the tide tables carefully.

If you have a passion for abbeys, this might be your idea of heaven. Four famous Border Abbeys are sited at Jedburgh, Melrose, Dryburgh and Kelso.

The impressive Leaderfoot viaduct of 13 arches closed in 1948. There is no public access so you have to content yourself with a view from the road.

Staying around Melrose, you have the Eildon Hills. Classed as a severe walk by the Ranger service, it’s not a place for trainers.

Glenkinchie is Scotland’s southernmost distillery. Home of the Edinburgh Malt, and the only Lowland distillery in the east of Scotland, it takes its water from reservoirs in the Lammermuir Hills.

This is only a tiny taste of all there is to explore on a tour of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. If you have anything special that we haven’t mentioned and you want to see, let us know and we’ll tailor your Scottish tour for you.
