Great tour! Passionate Scottish tour guide, took the group to ‘secret’ local lookouts that were incredible and very knowledgeable about Scotland’s past and present. Managed to find Highland Coo’s but not the LochNess monster 😉

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village

but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

We were only there long enough to get pictures and a quick lunch. That might vary by tour though.
