Itinerary

Description of the activity

Edinburgh has so much to offer it may be daunting for first time visitors. Its many famous museums, art galleries, theaters, churches and countless other historic and architectural landmarks, you are sure to have some time to explore this city properly. We will take you for a time travel through its preserved medieval street plan and give you insight over this protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk the Royal Mile, the most important street in the city, running between the castle and the palace of Holyroodhouse. It is exactly 1.814,2 meters, what originated from a somewhat unknown measure: the scottish mile. Take a look at the cuddly Greyfriars Bobby’s Statue, representing Edinburgh’s favourite four-legged hero, a small dog adopted by a policeman (“bobby”) named John Grey. Discover 1602’s Greyfriars Church (Kirkyard), a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as the oldest building in the Old Town. Built on the site of an abandoned Franciscan monastery, its name derives from those very same monks. Be sure to hear the legend of the “Bloody” Lord Advocate ghost in the adjoining graveyard. Here you will have the best view of Edinburgh Castle. Built in the 12th century, it is the second most visited building in the UK after the Tower of London. It stands on top of Castle Rock, a basalt rock hill inhabited since the 9th century BC. The first castle was built by King David I of Scotland and it remained a royal residence until 1603. So why not join us to get to know in detail the Old Town of Edinburgh, the oldest district of Scotland’s capital.
