Soul of Scotland Tours

    Soul of Scotland Tours is a family business that is passionate about people enjoying Scottish history, culture, mystery and adventure. We run two walking tours in Edinburgh, but also two themed day trips in Midlothian called The Mystery Tour and The Medieval Tour. A tour guide, dressed as a medieval monk, will accompany you as we explore some of the gems of Scotland: Gilmerton Cove, Craigmillar Castle, Rosslyn Chapel, Roslin Castle, Dalhousie Castle, Borthwick Castle, Crichton Castle and Crichton Collegiate Church. Why travel all day long looking at Scotland through a coach window, when you can live it, feel it and breathe it on Edinburgh’s doorstep?
