You might think whisky is Scotland’s national drink but 70% of gin consumed in the UK is being made in Scotland * Scotland has a rich history in making and drinking gin, so I am thrilled to add to this…Read more
We are always delighted to offer bespoke tours from groups of two to thirty two plus! We can adapt the tour or added stops if requested. A group of 30 hens embraced the safari theme and wore safari hats – a surreal scene to see thirty safari hats bobbing past Georgian pillars.
Another group asked for music and food and we gave them the red carpet treatment with a piper and drummer and traditional Scottish harp and fiddles to accompany their haggis neeps and tattie experience.
Email Nell firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can create a food and drink walking tour to give you and your group a unique and memorable insight to Edinburgh. Prices start from £29 per person
Silent Mac Disco
NEW FOR THIS YEAR’S FRINGE: SILENT MACDISCO!
SIGHTSEEING JUST GOT FUN: The audience meets at the top of The Royal Mile. Issued with individual wifi headphones, they are invited to dance to a glorious mix of Scottish tunes from Andy Stewart’s Donald Where’s Your Trousers to Run Rig’s Loch Lomond alternated with disco hits such as with I’m So Excited from The Pointer Sisters and the iconic Village People’s YMCA. At the same time, two actors reveal a love story through a series of silent movie style placards.
This fun interactive show has been written to celebrate Nell’s home town of Edinburgh. “We wanted to make the show site specific – one of Edinburgh’s oldest closes, the atmospheric 16th century Advocate’s Close, is the perfect place to dance to Ghostbusters, while the best place in the world to dance a Scottish reel is under the watchful eye of Edinburgh Castle”
