Old Edinburgh Tour

This guided tour of Edinburgh will reveal to you not just some of the streets of Scotland’s historic Old Town today; it will let you discover what they were once like. We love taking our guests to the very places where some of Scotland’s most famous (and infamous) characters lived and walked. Walk in the footsteps of; Mary, Queen of Scots, ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’, Robert Burns, Deacon Brodie, Burke and Hare and more!

On this tour, you will visit three of Old Edinburgh’s execution spots, the site of the notorious Tolbooth prison, the place where Burke and Hare brought their victim's bodies and even the scene of what is almost certainly Scotland’s most significant and infamous assassination.


Meeting Point: Your guide will meet you just inside the main gate to Greyfriars Kirkyard, in front of the church, (EH1 2QQ).  Please arrive at 5-10 minutes prior to the tour start time, so that the guide will be able to start the tour on time.

Finishing Point: Your guide will walk you back to Greyfriars Kirkyard.
