A walking tour of Edinburgh’s Old Town is a must when visiting Scotland’s capital. Although the city boasts of a chic metropolitan vibe, its historic heart offers visitors the perfect place to set out on foot and discover the rich historical heritage along the country’s famous Royal Mile.  It is compact and easy to get around so you need no more than two hours to finish your exploration. However, if you are a history buff or an eager photographer, you will find yourself enjoying hours on end in the area.
