  • Edinburgh Castle - The Witchery Restaurant is just a few feet from its esplanade.
  • St Giles Cathedral - Mercat Cross is the octogonal stone monument just outside it.
  • Tron Kirk - The Tron Kirk is the Old Town's tourist information centre and can't be missed.

Getting to your accommodation after the tours

The tours finish off in various parts of the Royal Mile. The street is very close to the heart of Edinburgh and there are plenty of taxis, buses (day and night buses) in the immediate vicinity.
