      On an Edinburgh night tour, it’s easy to feel like you’ve stepped back in time. The city comes alive when the Royal Mile lights up, street lamps switch on, and historic buildings are dramatically illuminated against the night sky. An Edinburgh night tour with a local guide will let you experience the after-hours pastimes of the people who call the city home. Whether you decide to club hop, bar crawl, enjoy a sit-down dinner, or stargaze at the Royal Observatory, the things to do in Edinburgh at night are unforgettable. Simply tell us what you want to do, and we’ll take care of the rest.

      Pick a place to suit your pace

      Every traveler’s idea of the ultimate night out is different, so an Edinburgh night tour with City Unscripted will always be 100% personalized. The city’s diverse districts have something for a certain type of night owl, and we’ll plan your night tour in an area that suits your style. If you want drinking and dancing, the Cowgate area with its live music, quirky speakeasies, and electrifying clubs is a must-visit. But if you prefer your Edinburgh night tour a little more low-key, you could head to George Street’s elegant cocktail lounges or the late-night shops on vibrant Princes Street.

      There’s something spooky about the atmospheric Scottish capital, and in Edinburgh at night, there’s a definite chill in the air. An Edinburgh night tour is the perfect time to discover the city’s pagan past, creepy ghost stories, and unnerving tales of mystery and murder. If you’re feeling particularly brave, you could learn about the real-life inspiration for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and see the sites of old witch trials, or turn your experience into an Edinburgh haunted tour at the city’s historic graveyards and underground vaults rumored to be plagued by restless spirits.

        We had Richard as a private guide. He is a great guide. He is very friendly and knowledgeable of Edinburgh. He educated us on a lot of JK Rowling ties to Edinburgh. He showed us some great places to eat along the way, too.

        We spent a wonderful 3 hours with our guide, Doug, on a walking tour tasting whisky in Edinburgh. Doug gave us an immersion class in Scotch whiskey and threw in some Scottish history along the way. He made our journey enjoyable any relatable. We were so glad to get to know Doug and experience the things he loves about Edinburgh. We highly recommend booking him for any Edinburgh adventure.
