Eat Walk Edinburgh Canongate Brunch Tour
The Edinburgh Canongate Brunch food tour starts 10am finishes around 1pm. The Brunch food 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.
You meet local people who enthuse about Scottish food & 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 reinvent itself.
This food tour stops at a number of shops and bars with your local guide talking about the history of the area as you walk between venues.
On this food walking tour, you will have the opportunity to taste locally sourced Scottish smoked salmon, venison, oatcakes, chutneys, cheeses, haggis, craft gin and shortbread to name but a few. You will also see the making of delicious fudge with an obligatory tasting of course.
A couple of other highlights on this food walking tour is a tasting of Scottish whisky paired with chocolate and a Scottish beer and cheese tasting in what was Edinburgh’s main brewing district.
No need to worry about lunch after the tour is finished.
You will be given audio headsets enabling you to walk at your own pace but still hear what your local guide has to say. You guide will not only talk about the history of the area but also point other places to visit once the tour is over.
Your guide will hand out maps at end of the tour showing the venues visited, which also has offers/discount should you wish to return to buy anything. We pay all venues for our visits so there is no obligation for those on the tour to buy. It is about experiencing new tastes and learning more about this wonderful city so you can then go out and enjoy it more on your own.
