Edinburgh Walking Food Tour

Taste Scottish specialities on an Eat Walk Edinburgh Tour

We love this combination of a bit of history and walking paired with food and drink. Eat Walk Edinburgh offers a novel and very sociable way to get to know the city better and discover the people, places and stories behind its food and drink establishments. Taste Scottish specialities such as haggis, neeps & tatties and, of course, a wee dram of Scotch whisky.

Eat Walk Enjoy

If only history lessons at school had been designed like this. With both the outdoors and tasting high on the agenda then we’re sure we would all have remembered so much more. The Eat Walk Edinburgh tour gives you the chance to take a break from traditional sightseeing and relax in the company of fellow travellers as you taste your way through some of the best bars, restaurants and shops in the city.

A Choice of Tours

There are two different tours you can choose from. Each one stops at 5 places in the city. The locations chosen are unusual and many have a story to tell in their own right. You’ll be served tasting plates at each one so by the end of the tour, you’ll feel like you’ve been out for tapas with your friends.

Take a Tasting Tour of the Old and New Town

This tour takes place in both the afternoon and the evening. As well as having a starter, main course, cheese, charcuterie and dessert during the tour, there’s a chance to taste Haggis, neeps & tatties, enjoy a wine tasting, Malt whisky tasting and one or two other food and drink surprises along the way. You’re advised to skip lunch before the tour and book a late or light dinner afterwards.

Eat a Canongate Brunch

The morning 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’ll meet local people who enthuse about Scottish food and drink and taste some of their wares. The tour visits a hotel, three shops, a restaurant and a bar. Enjoy an early morning cocktail with some breakfast canapés, taste locally sourced food, see fudge being made, hear about Scottish whisky from one of Scotland’s oldest independent bottlers of whisky and even try a taste of Sweden with a Smorgasbord. You’ll finish off with a beer tasting and a Scottish cheese selection in what was Edinburgh’s main brewing district. You will definitely not need lunch afterwards!


  • All the tours are conducted in English
  • There are some small hills to negotiate on both walks
