NEW : Sunrise picnic tour on Arthur’s Seat. See below for details.

Some of our suggested tours:

Edinburgh City Highlights (4 miles)

£20 per person  – approximately 1 hour

 

Full of Edinburgh’s best known sights and views, the City Highlights Tour is the perfect tour if you don’t have much time, or if you like your runs short and sweet.

We will head up to Calton Hill where you can enjoy 360 degree views over the city, before we head down to Holyrood to see the Palace and Parliament. From there it is up the Royal Mile where we will explore some of its hidden corners, through the city’s oldest market area and to the historic Castle. We finish by heading in to the New Town, through the park that was a loch and finishing up where we started.

Panoramic Edinburgh (6 miles)

£35 per person plus £15 for each extra person – approximately 1 hour 45 minutes

Sunrise picnic tour (see below for details) £40 per person

 

As per the City Highlights Tour, plus a loop around the stunning Arthur’s Seat, or if you are game, all the way to the summit!

For an extra £10 per person (£15 during May – August due to the very early sunrises and very late sunsets), you can also take advantage of a stunning sunset or sunrise over the city and its surrounds, while enjoying a hot drink provided by us.

If you want a truly magical experience, then May – September you can do a sunrise tour with us where we go up Arthur’s Seat and watch the sunrise over the city while having a breakfast of fresh local pastries, fruit and fruit juice, before we head back down and finish off with a loop of the slowly waking city. £40 per person and only available April – the end of August.

NOTE: Please be aware that during summer months sunset is around 22:00 and sunrise at 04:00! 

Water of Leith & Village life (7 miles)

£35 per person plus £15 for each extra person – approximately 1 hour 45 minutes

Cobbles, trails & beach (12 miles)

£50 per person plus £20 for each extra person – approximately 2 hour 30 minutes

 

A unique perspective of Edinburgh away from the main tourist sites, taking you past Duddingston Loch, past the oldest pub in Scotland, down to Portobello beach and back up along Brunstane Burn Path & along the Innocent Railway.  Uncover the real beauty of Edinburgh and where the local runners like to hang out. The standard run is 12 miles but we can make it longer if you want to see more.

Braw Whisky Night Run (adults only) (5 miles)

£35 per person  – approximately 1 hour 45 minutes

Edinburgh changes personality as night time descends throughout the city from the vibrant and exciting city night lights to the eerie haunted cemeteries and tunnels what better time to be exploring the city.  A fun route darting around the city and finishing off with views of the Castle lit up at night, let me take you safely through the darkened streets for a night time running tour.  We finish off the tour with a wee dram of whisky for a truly Scottish experience and will be sure to warm you all the way through to your toes, participants on the whisky drinking must be 18 years of age or older. (Head torch recommended, can be supplied if required).  Please note over summer, it is light until at least 10pm so not in darkness!

7 Hills of Edinburgh (14 – 16 tough miles)

£70 per person plus £20 for each extra person – approximately 3 hour 45 minutes

 

This is for the experienced runners among you and not to be taken lightly as its a hilly (as the name would suggest) 15 – 16 mile circuit, so make sure you have some water and snacks with you.  This route is actually a race that takes place annually in June every year, but it is also a great way to see some stunning views of Edinburgh and beyond at anytime of the year on your own merit.  The route starts and finishes on Calton Hill, heading out to enjoy Corstorphine Hill, Craiglockhart Hill East, Braid Hill, Blackford Hill and up Arthur’s Seat before finishing back on Calton Hill.  Who knows we might even see a Zebra along the way!
