As the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns once wrote: "I'd be mair vauntie o'
my hap, Douce hingin' owre my curple, Than ony ermine ever lap, Or proud
imperial purple." No clue? All "Scottish" to you? Didn't think
anything rhymed with purple? Then this tour is for you! On this tour we
translate Edinburgh's colorful history into plain English as we lift the kilt
of the city to unveil all the nooks and crannies that make this one of the most
intriguing burgs in Europe. Beginning at the boggy banks of Castlehill, this
tour takes you through the Medieval Old Town, up the Royal Mile, and onto the
Castle as we storm Edinburgh from the bottom up. Och-aye!
