Event description
A two-hour walking tour which reveals Edinburgh's iconic Calton Hill as a place of contrasts.

About this event

One of Edinburgh’s most famous landmarks this tour uncovers Calton Hill’s past as a place of fun and fear; education and incarceration; grand town-houses and dingy back-streets; and much more.

Taking in the wider Calton Hill area you'll discover how its spaces have been used over the centuries and uncover some of the people who have called it home. Along the way you'll see fabulous architecture and learn about its key buildings including the Old and New Observatories, the Royal High School and the long-gone Calton Jail.

Meet in Greenside Place, EH1 3AA - the side lane next to the Omni Centre - see map below for details.

  • Super-small groups of maximum 8 people.
  • This tour takes place outside and covers 4-5km, please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes.
