About Auld Toun Walking Tours
We offer historical walking tours of Edinburgh’s UNESCO Heritage Listed Old Town (Auld Toun in Scots). Our tours are tailored for small groups, with a maximum of 12 people per tour. After successfully running a Burke and Hare walking tour, we are currently developing a new tour based on Calton Hill: amazing views, hidden histories. Social distance will be able to be maintained due to the large, outdoor space.

An extremely comprehensive, interesting and atmospheric walking tour. Our guide Steve obviously has done a great deal of research into the life and times of Burke and Hare and is also a great source of information on other aspects of the history of the old town. I would highly recommend and felt it was extremely good value.

Two friends, my wife and I went on this walking tour as we only had a few days in Edinburgh and thought we’d give it a go. I am so glad we did, we all thoroughly enjoyed it and Steve our guide gave a fascinating insight into what the Edinburgh of Messrs Burke and Hare was like. 90 mins fled by. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Entertaining and informative walking tour related to the exploits of 1820s murderers-Burke and Hare. Great information and visiting bits of Edinburgh I've not seen before(and I live here). Steve was knowledgable and entertaining with lots of facts about 19th century Edinburgh. Well worth the walk. Do it, it's fun.

A really interesting walk around key locations in the Burke and Hare story. Steve is a great guide and had lots of facts and social history of the time woven into the tour. Even as an Edinburgh resident, I learned a lot and enjoyed seeing hidden away places I'd never seen before. Highly recommended - and it will get you off the busy tourist trail.
