Edinburgh

Walk, run, or cycle along the historical streets and paths of the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh. The city is jam-packed with things to do all within a decent distance of each other. Expand your mind in UNESCO’s first City of Literature, marvel at Edinburgh Castle, and get a breath of fresh air from Princes Street Gardens and the Meadows. Run along Portobello Beach, Fisherrow Sands, and the Water of Leith while snapping a few pictures along the way. Feel inspired at Edinburgh’s top art museums, watch the sunset or sunrise atop Calton Hill with a 360 view of the city’s landmarks, and waltz down the halls of Holyrood Palace and Gardens. Throughout the year, Edinburgh hosts some of the most magnificent festivals such as the Fringe, the International Literary Festival, a dazzling Christmas market in December, and the 3-day Hogmanay festival to welcome the New Year. Hear bagpipes and buskers along the streets in between quaint souvenir shops, pubs, and restaurants. The Potterheads will be pleased to visit the sights that inspired the beloved novel series such as Riddle’s grave, the school that allegedly inspired Hogwarts, and the very café where J.K. Rowling began writing the first book in the series. Let us guide you through this wonderful city, that is absolutely worth the hype, while you create memories that last.
