Embark on a journey through the winding alleys and mysterious corners of Scotland's capital with this Self-Guided Audio Tour. Suitable for solo adventurers or curious explorers, this tour reveals the enigmatic heart of Edinburgh, from its historic highs to its secret lows. Starting at the majestic Edinburgh Castle, perched atop an ancient volcano, you'll traverse the famous Royal Mile, a pathway echoing with tales of the past and present. From the awe-inspiring St Giles' Cathedral down to the Canongate Tolbooth, every step is a story waiting to be heard. Dip into the fairy tale John Knox House, visit the solemn Heart of Midlothian, and pause at writers' and politicians' haunts. Ending near the castle, at The Scotch Whisky Experience, your curiosity about Edinburgh's liquid heart will be piqued, even from the outside. The highlight of the tour promises a rare glimpse beneath the city's surface at Real Mary King's Close, where hidden history breathes in the darkness. Here, you'll walk in the footsteps of former residents, picturing their lives within these walls long buried by time. As you follow the route, expect to be touched by stories of everyday heroes and infamous characters, allowing you to see Edinburgh not just as a cityscape, but as a tapestry woven with vibrant human threads.
