TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This tour takes in all the major sights of the historic Edinburgh centre and then also takes you up to the top of Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh’s extinct volcano only a stone’s throw away from the city centre!

If you enjoy running and you want to see everything that the city has to offer, but you also want to take on the challenge of getting the 251 metres (820 feet) to the top of Arthur’s Seat hill, then this is the tour for you. We go at a leisurely pace so you can appreciate your surroundings and we take it very easy up the hill, with most people doing a fast paced walk while admiring the incredible views over the city, the nearby hills and sea. We also stop plenty of times along the way for photos!

In the city centre part of the tour, I will take you to visit the city’s most historic monuments on Calton Hill, an official UNESCO World Heritage site, where you will be able to look across at Arthur’s Seat where you will soon be heading! We then head down to Holyrood, where you admire the Queen’s official Scottish residence and look across at the very unique and controversial design of our Scottish parliament building. From here it it’s time to make our way to the top for 360 degree views of Edinburgh and its surroundings.

After that you have the fun of heading back down and back into the city where we head up the historic Royal Mile. At the top, we reach Edinburgh Castle, the most fought over castle in the United Kingdom! From here, it is downhill all the way into Princes Street Gardens, the now beautiful park area that in the 16th century was a poisonous loch at the foot of the castle! On the final stretch of our run, I take you down the impressive George Street, lined with statues of kings and noblemen, that used to be the banking capital of Scotland, but is now our luxury shopping street. We finish the tour passing through St Andrew’s Square and gazing up at the imposing Melville Monument and we end up finishing where we started.

Please note: You need suitable sturdy running shoes for Arthur’s Seat and it can often be muddy and windy. It is advisable to have a decent level of fitness for this tour as the final part up the hill is steep!

The meeting point for the tour will be outside your accommodation if it is a central location; otherwise an appropriate city centre location will be agreed in advance.

BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
