Edinburgh: The People's Story
Want to be shown around the amazing city of Edinburgh by someone who knows what they’re talking about?
Look no further: Walking Tours in Scotland are happy to provide you with a charming and knowledgeable local guide.
Edinburgh is an unforgettable city. Its magnificent buildings are unmistakable, and within you’ll find fascinating history, unique culture and so much more.
Built near a volcano, the city has seen its fair share of disaster - look no further than all the infamous criminals and killers who have caused chaos in these cobbled streets.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Burke and Hare, the grisly killers who sold the bodies they “acquired” to a local doctor?
Yet this great city has also seen plenty of triumph. Just look at the legendary celebrations that are held here every year, like the Fringe Festival and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
To discover all this city has to offer on your own would be nearly impossible, which is why your guide will be invaluable.
For one and a half hours, they’ll tell you all about the stories and characters that built this city, taking you through the iconic old town.
