What you'll do

Edinburgh is a dynamic city but to find the hidden gems you need some local insight. This is where I come in & from food - to - nature - to - whisky - we'll jump straight into our Stockbridge sensory adventure.

First, we'll pick up our (pre-ordered) coffee & tasty sweets from the 'Pastry Section' where we'll meet the owners, deliciously sip coffee & grab a sweet snap before meandering through the atmospheric cobblestone streets, as I point out film inspired spots.

I'll show you the real 'Hogsmeade' from Harry Potter & we'll stroll past Tony Blair's grand old school before capturing a 'photo' moment on the Water of Leith bridge. We'll then meander our way back into Stockbridge to taste Artisan Cheese from MY favourite hidden Cheesemonger & peruse the UK's 2019 'Best Independent Bookseller' winning bookshelves. Yay!

After all that walking we'll be ready for a dram (or two) & will settle in for a true Scottish Tasting treat at Edinburgh​'s finest Whisky bar. YUM!

It's a small-group tour limited to 10 people to ensure a personalized experience!
Other things to note
Please bring an open mind, weatherproof jacket (if it's forecast to be wet) & comfortable shoes!
