Edinburgh in 101 objects

Treasure hunt meets history tour – Edinburgh’s 101 Objects trail tells Edinburgh’s story in a whole new way.

Edinburgh Castle

They say you haven’t been the Edinburgh until you’ve been here, so make this top of your to-do list.

Dynamic Earth

Take the Deep Time Machine back to the era of the Big Bang, come face-to-face with a giant dinosaur.

Calton Hill

You can see for miles from the top of Calton Hill– yet it’s a relatively easy walk up.

Royal Yacht Britannia

Have a nosey round the Britannia – where Charles and Diana spent their honeymoon.

Princes Street Gardens

Princes Street Gardens is a haven of tranquillity, nestled between the towering rocks and walls of Edinburgh Castle, and the commotion of busy Princes Street.

Edinburgh Dungeons

The Edinburgh Dungeon is scary family fun at its best. So scary, in fact, that it’s recommended only for wee ones over 8, and under-5s aren’t allowed in.

The Lighthouse

Tucked away in a narrow lane off bustling Buchanan Street, and just five minutes’ walk from Queen Street, this Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building was once the offices of the Glasgow Herald newspaper.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland’s top tourist attractions.
