Explore Edinburgh with two, quirky, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt. Buy in booklet or instant download format.

Walk 1. Old Town - 1.33 miles / 2.1 kms
Starting at the famous Edinburgh Castle, home of the Military Tattoo, this walk wends its way in and out of the Royal Mile, exploring cobbled streets and quirky passages. After circling the imposing St Giles' Cathedral and Parliament Square it continues down the Royal Mile before heading off down North Bridge, with Waverley Station far below! Next you pass the impressive Register House before finishing at the staggeringly splendid Calton Hill.

Walk 2. New Town - 1.25 miles / 2 kms
Initially explore the World Heritage site of Calton Hill, with its spectacular views of the city and beyond. Next pass The Regent’s Bridge, before heading to St Andrew Square, and along elegant George Street. Pause to view regal statues, before navigating along a bustling street with famous shops, bars and eateries. Finally into the gorgeous Princes Street Gardens to end at the grandeur of the Scott Monument– will you have the energy to climb it?

Explore, Discover & Enjoy!
