Tour description

Once we begin our adventure for the day you will see and visit places of Mary's past and locations that featured in the Mary Queen of Scots Movie.We visit Mary's birthplace that is Linlithgow palace, Holyrood Palace where Mary lived and used to hunt and ride in the adjacent park with some of the most breath taking views the city has to offer. We will see John Knox's House where John Knox planned and schemed to overthrow the queen. We will see where her favourite horse was stabled and where her favourite jeweller resided.We will also see where Darnley was murdered, we will be visiting many more places but I have to keep something for the tour.We can also stop at one of Scotland's pubs for your lunch that dates back to 1316. A pub that is older than when the queen returned to Scotland.Depending on traffic we will also try and see as much of Edinburgh's old town as possible as well!All my tours are flexible and customisable to you.I look forward to sharing this day with you!
