“The Rebels Footsteps” is approximately 2 hrs long and retraces the steps of the Jacobite rebellion and the occupation of Edinburgh, throughout the tour we ponder 'what could have been?'. Get hands-on with history as you see and hear about the weapons of the Highlander army during the rebellion. Learn about the men who defied the norms and fought for their conscience and country. It’s one thing to hear stories or see the history behind glass cases in museums but it’s another thing to hold it in your hands. In this tour authenticity is everything, run by local guides, we can answer your questions, recommend things to do, places to eat and all the best bars in the city.
