Hi I'm Maca

  •  I am from Sevilla living (And loving) Scotland for over 7 years, I work as hotel manager and InstaTours every time I have the chance! I write a blog and I also share my photos on Instagram (I am obsessed with Insta!)  I love landscape photography and long exposure, I enjoy hiking, camping…outdoor plans are always welcome and I also enjoy crochet! I live in Edinburgh with my cat Louie and my dog Angus. I love foreign languages, and tour guiding!
  • spots for a tour of Edinburgh? I plan to go to the White horse close, dumbar close, tweeddale court, the royal mile, the grass market, the castle, and possibly candlemaker row and the greyfriars.

Routes

1. Holyrood Park

Holyrood Park is a unique historic landscape in the heart of the city, whose dramatic crags and hills give Edinburgh its distinctive skyline. Within the park is a wealth of history and archaeology spanning thousands of years. Arthur’s Seat is one of four hill forts, dating from around 2,000 years ago. As well as it’s rich cultural heritage, the park offers walks, solace, wildlife, volcanic geology and unparalleled vistas of the city from its many vantage points.

2. Bakehouse Close

Bakehouse Close is one of 80 closes that fall off the Royal Mile. Bakehouse Close is located in Canongate, next to The Museum of Edinburgh and across the street from New Calton Burial Ground.

3. Greyfriars Bobby

Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh, Scotland, after reportedly spending fourteen years guarding his owner’s grave, until his own death on 14 January 1872. The story continues to be well known in Scotland, through several books and films. A prominent commemorative statue and nearby graves are a tourist attraction.

4. Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is a world famous icon of Scotland and part of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. It was recently voted top UK Heritage Attraction in the British Travel Awards and is Scotland’s number one paid-for tourist attraction. This most famous of Scottish castles has a complex building history.

5. St Giles’ Cathedral

St Giles’ Cathedral is the historic City Church of Edinburgh. With its famed crown spire it stands on the Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, it is the Mother Church of Presbyterianism and contains the Chapel of the Order of the Thistle (Scotland’s chivalric company of knights headed by the Queen). Please do not book any tours through TripAdvisor, as they are not endorsed by the cathedral.

6. Mystery Locations

Discover mystery locations on your tour, this will be decided on the day with the weather, fresh Grafitti, preference of the guests on the tour and new Instagrammable locations being found by our InstaGuides. You will find out at the start of each tour where you’ll find the best hidden gems
