Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and the second most visited tourist destination in the UK after London. The Old and New Town districts were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. The city is steeped in Roman history and the south of the city is dominated by Edinburgh Castle, perched atop an extinct volcanic crag.
The Old Town is laid out on a medieval plan but features many reformation era buildings. Ideal areas for a Edinburgh treasure hunt includes The Royal Mile, Princes and Queen Streets and Charlotte Square, designed by Robert Adam and considered one of the finest Georgian Squares in the world.
Edinburgh is one of our favourite locations for a treasure hunt because there is so much to do in such a compact area. You can explore so much of this wonderful city on foot in a half day and there are many welcoming establishments in which we can end an event and relax.
The city is also extremely vibrant and colourful. There are often events going on and people in interesting costumes as well as the flamboyant local dress and, of course, bagpipes. You know you are in Scotland when you are in Edinburgh.
We have a team in Edinburgh ready to be scrambled for your corporate and private events!
Edinburgh is also covered by our Treasure Hunt packs so if you want to run your own event to save costs this is an option.
