Meeting Point

All tours start out from the main steps of St. Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile. These are the steps across the street from Royal Mile Whiskies, behind the statue of the Duke of Buccleuch, just over from the Heart of Midlothian. (Open in Google Maps)

Know Before You Go
All camera types are welcome, from DSLR to compact cameras and even smart phones.

These tours operate in all weather conditions and sometimes require walking over grass and up steps. Please dress appropriately for the weather, packing a jacket and umbrella just in case.

Be sure to wear good walking shoes or trainers and avoid high heels.

It is recommended that you bring something to drink to keep yourself hydrated, although it is easy enough to stop and buy something on the way as well.
