Welcome to the beating heart of the highlands, where sea meets sky and ancient monuments perch atop rocky crags.

Follow one of our Edinburgh hosts as you explore Edinburgh’s stunning natural surroundings together, from trails up Arthur’s Seat to catch sight of the city from above, to the windswept coastal paths.

Tackle the imposing hillsides, stroll through the quiet glades or simply enjoy a lazy afternoon in one of the city’s parks. 

The Meadows is a popular picnic destination, as is Holyrood Park, where you can stretch out on a blanket and bask in the happy sounds of friends gathering, balls being kicked around (mind your head) and dogs being walked.

Perhaps you and your host would like to visit the Botanical Gardens together, where you can get a comprehensive feel for the kinds of flora that naturally occur in this part of the world?

Scotland’s natural beauty has inspired many myths - ask your host to share a few tales of auld with you, and as the bagpipes carry across the wind, you’ll be transported back in time.
