Geopend

The Three Volcanoes story starts 340 million years ago, when the topography of Edinburgh was moulded by violent seismic eruptions. It then reveals man’s subsequent development of the land for defence, settlement, commerce and leisure.

Edinburgh Walks leads this private or small group walk on a journey from under the shadow of volcanic Castle Rock, through Edinburgh’s Georgian and Victorian industrial past to parkland where golf has been played since the mid 16th century.

We move on to the Queens Park and a world famous discovery by the “father of modern geology” at Arthur’s Seat, The Palace of Holyrood House, the Scottish Parliament and the Canongate where Season 3 of Outlander was filmed. Thereafter we go to Volcanic Calton Hill and it’s panoramic views of Edinburgh & Leith and memorials to war (including “Edinburgh’s Disgrace”).

We then enter the Medieval High Street, Lawnmarket, and Grassmarket where we walk along the streets frequented by Burke & Hare, two of the most infamous murderers of the 19th Century. Lastly we take in the site of the Nor’ Loch and a quiet city centre cemetery with its old watchtower, erected to deter Resurrectionists.
