Explore Edinburgh’s Royal Mile on the Outlander Tour

Explore Edinburgh’s Royal Mile on the Outlander Tour

Join us for the Romance Journeys Outlander Tour of Scotland

September 29 to October 11, 2015

The first full day of Romance Journeys Outlander Tour of Scotland will focus on Ediburgh’s Royal Mile, where Jamie and Claire beseech Bonnie Prince Charlie to the abandon the hopeless Jacobite cause.

Ediburgh’s Royal Mile is one of the world’s oldest and most famous streets, linking Edinburgh Castle at the top of the hill with the palace of Holyrood House at the bottom.  Walking “The Mile” as it’s known is an activity that visitors and locals have undertaken for hundreds of years.  To save your legs, it’s best walked down hill and along the way, you’ll see the castle, the Scotch Whisky Experience, St Giles Cathedral, the Scottish Parliament building and endless tartan-covered souvenir shops.  Most of the buildings in between though are jam packed full of history as the buildings on the mile have remained largely unchanged for centuries. Look out for the old toll house with its lovely clock and John Knox House in particular.

Check out the gallery below to view of some of the notable buildings along the Royal Mile.
