This 3 day tour was a great way to see the sights of Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands. Martine, our guide was a fabulous driver and extremely knowledgable about the history of the area and even managed to throw in some references to popular movies and TV shows that were filmed in places that we visited. She did well... More

We took the West Highlands Castles and Lochs tour taking us to Doune Castle, Inverarry, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Awe and Kilchurn Castle and Loch Lomond. It was a lovely tour and we were fortunate to have the very knowledgeable and friendly Stuart as our guide. He entertained us... More

Myself and my partner left from Edinburgh on the day trip to Loch Ness. It wasn't too bad an early start, especially for a 12 hour long trip. The coach we were in was super comfy and our driver (Liam) was very welcoming. He provided us commentary on what we saw out of the window about history, facts, stories and... More

I took the tour in January 2017 of the West Highlands, Inveraray, Loch Lomond and Stirling Castle. Most of the trip is actually being in the bus which was comfortable. We stopped several times in little towns which were lovely. The tour guide was quite the comedian which I think we all appreciated, as well as a great historian of... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
