Do a self-guided walking tour of the Old Town
Kickstart your Scottish adventure with a morning wander around Edinburgh's famous medieval city centre, starting on the Royal Mile. With its wide, cobbled street and dark sandstone buildings, this ancient processional route stretches all the way from Edinburgh Castle down to Holyrood Palace. Appreciate the morning quiet at your own pace, exploring the medieval alleyways running off the main thoroughfare at Lawnmarket. Top sights include the striking St. Giles Cathedral, the former Tolbooth prison and the secret squares of Riddles Court and Bakehouse Close.
