    National Museum of Scotland and Royal Mile Tour

    You'll meet your guide in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town at the Mercat Cross, the site of executions and proclamations. Together you will explore key locations and stories hidden around the Royal Mile. See a city of the past, which goes unnoticed for many, a city where commoners, Queens and criminals once walked.

    Iconic Scottish objects mixed with streets soaked in history. Follow your guide to the National Museum of Scotland where our nation's treasures are stored. Once inside your Mercat tour guide will introduce the Scottish collections. You'll step through Scotland's history, using key objects, and hear how they all have shaped our past, present and future.
