However what I can do, as a lifetime resident of Edinburgh, is bring Edinburgh to life! With many years of walking tours experience, I offer a unique insight into Edinburgh's character, with stories of the famous - and the infamous! My ethos is to inform and to entertain. My private tours provide you with an opportunity to learn about not only the facts, but the stories and tales around Edinburgh's fascinating history. Through previous employment with Historic Scotland, I am an accredited guide for Edinburgh Castle. I offer tours with you own private guide, they can be standard and customised tours and can tailor your needs around the places of interest within this beautiful city. I also offer flexibility with days and times of tours to suit your itinerary. My quality tours are affordable and I would hope by the end of the tour, you will have a real sense of Edinburgh, capital city of that old and ancient land of Scotland.
