Edinburgh has so much to offer and we will walk amongst the old streets and take in the sights of the castle, the Royal Mile and uncover the countless stories and secrets around every corner. JK Rowling was inspired to write Harry Potter after walking around these streets!
What is wonderful about this trip is that we can enjoy city life but also get out into the nature that surrounds the city. Holyrood Park shapes Edinburghs skyline and we will walk in the dramatic hills including Arthur’s Seat the highest point at 251m.
The Pentland Hills are a range of hills just outside the city, twenty miles in length, giving us opportunities to walk for miles and see another part of this area.
During our 4 days there will be evening walks and day walks to ensure you get a full taste of Scotland and this gorgeous area.
Walks may change depending on the weather. Our guide will brief you each day. More detail coming very soon.
