Edinburgh: Old Town treasure hunt
Our Edinburgh: Old Town treasure hunt centres on the medieval heart of the city, heading up the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle
Starting at Waverley Station, our Edinburgh: Old Town treasure hunt heads up Market Street and crosses to George IV Bridge. Passing the café where Harry Potter was created, we check out Greyfriars Bobby and 'the Toon Coo'. Then it's back to the Royal Mile, which is absolutely teeming with interesting sights and quirky clues, including 'the godfather of bizzare magick' and the Rothko murderer. The treasure hunt ends in front of Edinburgh Castle.
