Discover the sights of historic Edinburgh, the 15th-century capital of Scotland, aboard a hop-on hop-off double-decker bus. At your own pace, delve into the rich culture of this hilltop city as you explore its castles, museums, and architecturally significant neighborhoods.

Climb aboard a double-decker bus and set off on a loop around the city, jumping on and off wherever you want to get a closer look. Stroll through the winding cobblestone streets of the Old Town to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh's oldest street, which connects imposing Edinburgh Castle with the grand Palace of Holyroodhouse—the official residence of Her Majesty The Queen in Scotland.

Hop off in the UNESCO-listed New Town at Charlotte Square to admire the Georgian buildings that flank the manicured lawns of a private garden with a towering statue of Prince Albert as its centerpiece. Step inside the National Museum of Scotland to for exhibits on technology, natural history, and Scottish history dating back to the first century AD. Relax in the green oasis of Princes Street Greens, and be sure to stop by the Scott Monument, a 200-foot (61-m) Victorian Gothic spire dedicated to Sir Walter Scott—one of Scotland's most famous poets.

Route stops include:

  • St Andrew Square Northside
  • Lothian Road
  • Grassmarket
  • Johnston Terrace
