The Edinburgh Greyfriars Treasure Trail starts at:
Edinburgh & The Lothians
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

The Trail is friendly for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Unfortunately, this Trail enters areas where dogs are prohibited so we would not recommend bringing your four-legged friends along.
There are some fantastic events in Edinburgh's calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions - especially during the Fringe Festival. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Edinburgh Visitor Information.
Public toilets are available at the start and middle of the Trail, and there are a myriad of cafes, restaurants, pubs and other eating establishments throughout the route. The Meadows make a fantastic picnic spot if the weather is nice!
Why not make a day of it by visiting Mary King Close or St Giles Cathedral along the way? You could even challenge yourself to another Trail adventure to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing city!
