Old Edinburgh Tour

Those of you following my Old Edinburgh Facebook Page will be aware of the photographs I share and the historical accounts I offer.  It’s the historical accounts, anecdotes and information that forms the basis of my tours, combined with my own style (and a little bit of humour!) to offer you the best experience possible whilst walking the streets and closes of Old Edinburgh.

My tour is bespoke, unique and will take you to a number of the well known (and less well known) spots around the Old Town, particularly those that have proven so popular on my Facebook Page and formed the basis of my books.

You can visit these places with me personally, taking in the best of the Old Town through my eyes, with optional photographic tips available as we wander around the streets and closes.  I will tell you the history behind all the places you will see (the real history) with no gimmicks, costumes or make-up, warts and all and in the way only a native of Old Edinburgh can!
