If stones could talk, the cobbles and tenements of the Old Town would never let you hear the end of it. A unicorn in chains, a secret garden, superstitious shellfish, and love letters on the walls – these and many more curiosities are waiting to be discovered in the closes along the Royal Mile. We cover the entire Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Our tours are private, with customisable content, duration and routes, so we can focus on the aspects of Edinburgh's history that our guests are most interested in.
