The inside story

On observation, you would think there was a plan all along when erecting the buildings along the Royal Mile. Turns out that history, wonderment and sheer coincidence are to thank for this gem filled with different delights such as the Museum of Edinburgh, the Storytelling Centre and the Scotch Whisky Experience.

Veering off down the side streets, you’ll find quaint little businesses, perfect to take in a cup of your favorite blend or window shop along the way. Make sure to keep your camera ready for the local street performers and soak in the atmosphere as you enjoy every moment.

Stretching from the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen of Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle, you will be blown away by the hidden treasures all within walking distance along the most famous ‘Scot’s mile’ in the whole of Scotland.
