The atmospheric Royal Mile thoroughfare cuts through the historic core of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, extending for slightly more than a mile from Edinburgh Castle all the way to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Both sides of the partly pedestrianized street are bordered by historic granite buildings bearing shop display windows piled high with symbols of Scotland, from tartan to whisky to shortbread. In between the former tenements and taverns are darkened arm-width-wide alleyways, known locally as closes.

Why was a pet blackbird arrested in 1736? What did a washerwoman insist on before she would pull philosopher David Hume out of a swamp? Why was Robert the Bruce Edinburgh Castle’s most deadly enemy? You really couldn’t make up the history of Old Edinburgh! Seldom in the world can there have been so many odd events and strange goings-on in one town’s story as in Edinburgh, and telling these curious tales is what this tour is all about! Local doctor Moray Grigor is an Edinburgh native and lover of the city, and has been collecting some of the best of its stories to bring to you. Starting just below the Castle, we’ll be touring down the world-famous Royal Mile, ducking into alleys and back courts as we go, and we’ll be hearing the most outlandish, amusing and fascinating anecdotes of the Old Town, many collected by Edinburgh publisher and author Robert Chambers right back in 1824. In Edinburgh, truth really is stranger than fiction – as Dr Grigor will be delighted to show you!

Tales and Songs of the Royal Mile - Private Walking Tour

Come on an Edinburgh Old Town experience like no other! Your guide, Dr. Moray Grigor, is a local physician and folksinger with a passion for his native city, its songs, stories and curiosities. In this tour he brings all this together, (with a little help from his mandolin!), taking you on a fascinating and fun trip down the historic Royal Mile. You'll hear songs, poems, and Old Town tales galore, and you'll hear not just English but the more German/Scandinavian sound of Old Scots, and Scotland's own Celtic language, Gaelic. Don't worry, though, all will be understandable, as you will have a written guide to all the songs and poems. As we tour, Moray will tell stories from each part of the Royal Mile, and you'll meet the characters whose legends live on in Edinburgh's story - including Rabbie Burns, Deacon Brodie, Jenny Geddes, David Hume, and more. We're looking forward to welcoming you!

The Architecture of Money: A Self-Guided Audio Tour of Edinburgh’s New Town

The Architecture of Money: A Self-Guided Audio Tour of Edinburgh’s New Town

Edinburgh’s New Town is straight out of a world history of architecture, with its classical beauty and Georgian past. If you’re interested in hearing more about it then this informative self-guided GPS walking tour is for you. In 90 minutes, you’ll learn how Edinburgh became the largest planned town development in the world – and a "model city" – and in what sense its design and layout made it architecturally ideal. Although its original Georgian fabric has suffered many alterations, you'll see several clear traces of the former neoclassical city and the often-overlooked details in the fanlights and elegant ironwork of the original New Town street lights. You'll see buildings by celebrated British architects like Robert Adam and old maps and drawings. Downloading the tour onto the VoiceMap app to enjoy the tour on location or virtually at home.
