Curious About Edinburgh

Have fun discovering Edinburgh with two self-guided, quirky, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt. Buy in booklet or instant download format (to print at home or to use directly on a mobile device), & get curious!

Are you curious about Edinburgh? Looking for an unusual and quirky activity which gets you out in the fresh air whatever the weather? Take one of our self-guided walks with a treasure hunt theme – looping around the better-known sights, as well as some of the more unusual and quirky ones, which combined make Edinburgh a charming place to explore!

You’ll get everything – detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers in the back!), and interesting snippets about the history of Edinburgh and the people that have shaped it.

Buy in booklet or instant download format (to use on your mobile device or to print at home) from and explore in your own time. One booklet is enough for four people of all ages to enjoy.

Two walks are included in the booklet, the 2nd starts where the first finishes.

Walk 1: Old Town - 1.33 miles / 2.1 kms, 1-2 hours

Starting at the famous Edinburgh Castle, home of the Military Tattoo, this walk wends its way in and out of the Royal Mile, exploring cobbled streets and quirky passages. After circling the imposing St Giles' Cathedral and Parliament Square it continues down the Royal Mile before heading off down North Bridge. Next you pass the impressive Register House before finishing at Calton Hill.

Walk 2: New Town - 1.25 miles / 2 kms, 1-1.5 hours

Initially explore the World Heritage site of Calton Hill, with its spectacular views of the city and beyond. Next pass The Regent’s Bridge, before heading to St Andrew Square, and along the elegant George Street. Pause to view regal statues, then head down to the splendour of the Royal Scottish Academy and National Portrait Gallery. Finally into Princes Street Gardens to end at the grandeur of the Scott Monument– will you have the energy to climb it?
