Edinburgh tours and history articles of various aspects on Edinburgh & Scotland

Edinburgh Guided Tour – Old Town Edinburgh

I will take you on a fascinating journey through the centuries as we walk the Old Town of Edinburgh, showing you a building as old as 1130 and a tavern first established in 1516! I will also tell you of the darker aspects of life in Edinburgh from times long passed, including execution sites. Where did they take place? Who were the people who lost their lives there and what were their crimes?

We will visit Greyfriars graveyard, one of the most famous medieval kirkyards in the world. Whatever your taste I can tailor our time there to suit it. The meaning of symbols on gravestones, The Covenanters, body snatchers, and literary inspiration. If you have Harry Potter fans in your group I can show you the resting places of Tom Riddle and many other series characters.

Our walking tour will be of two hours duration and include a fifteen minute break.

I have a large number of five star reviews in respect of freelance tours I have taken for other companies. Please enquire for further information.
