Your route and documentation

This sped up video shows you the route we

plan on taking around the Old Town. 

Sometimes events in the Old Town mean we

have to make a few diversions, and we’re

always happy to add in locations you’ve been

There are toilets in the Museum of Scotland

which you can ask the Museum about using. 

You may wish to book their free-to-use Lunch

Thanks for getting this far down the page!  You

can download our risk assessment document and

our information sheet by clicking on the

merely a guide), this should provide a useful

guide to the tour you are taking and any risks you

will need to manage.

Please watch the route video as this will also

highlight the crossings we intend to use.  Please

note that there can sometimes be events in the

Old Town which require us to alter the route


We would be delighted to take your class tour and

are available most Mondays, Tuesdays, and

Wednesdays during the 2017/18 academic
