Wee Walking Tours

Wee Golden Walk:
From the Castle to the Palace
Every Wednesday-Sunday


Join Sami and Sawyer as we explore the colourful history of the Royal Mile as you learn about its closes, myths, and legends. The tour also includes a detour via Victoria Street to the Grassmarket and to Greyfriars Kirkyard. Along the way are some nice surprises for fans of Harry Potter, Avengers, and Outlander. The tour wraps up outside the Palace of Holyroodhouse with stories about Mary, Queen of Scots.


*Please note that Sawyer's participation is contingent on how he feels, weather, and conditions.
