Take in stunning views of the city from the summit of an extinct volcano, and discover Edinburgh’s unique history and folklore with a local guide.
With it’s cobbled streets and winding lanes, there’s no city quite as magical as Edinburgh. But have you ever ventured outside of the main city to discover its beautiful surroundings? Edinburgh has breathtaking green spaces steeped in history and mythology right on its doorstep, and we want to take you there.
Over 2 and a half hours, we will walk a route through the scenic royal reserve of Holyrood Park, climbing up to the summit of Arthur’s Seat, before descending and taking in spectacular views from the iconic Salisbury Crags. On the way, you’ll see stunning views of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, from the dockyards of Leith, the majestic Firth of Forth and the verdant hills of East Lothian.
While we walk, you will hear stories of Edinburgh’s historical past; its creation and triumphs, its darkest moments (including some violent battles and horrid murders), and its momentous scientific discoveries!
See Edinburgh from a new perspective. Join us for an outdoor adventure!
