Canongate Brunch Tour

Eat walk Edinburgh took two food bloggers from Qatar who were guests of Visit Britain on our Canongate food tour and this is what they filmed.


The Edinburgh Canongate tour starts 10am finishes around 1pm. The Brunch tour visits the lower half of the Royal Mile but takes you behind the buildings to show you a different side to this part of the city. We meet local people who enthuse about Scottish food and drink and taste their wares. We hope to show some of the cities eccentric side as well as reveal how the old buildings are being melded with the new as this part of Edinburgh continues to re invent itself.

This tour visits a hotel, three shops, a restaurant and a bar. Giving the opportunity to have an early morning cocktail with some breakfast canapés, taste locally sourced food, see the making of delicious fudge with an obligatory tasting of course. Hear about Scottish whisky from one of Scotland’s oldest independent bottler of whisky, throw in a taste of Sweden with a Smorgasbord and finish off with a beer tasting and a Scottish cheese selection in what was Edinburgh’s main brewing district. No need to worry about lunch after the tour is finished.

We can organise private tours on request and fine tune these to your own particular choices. Please email for further information.
