The Edinburgh Old Town Treasure Trail starts at:

Market Street

Edinburgh

City of Edinburgh

Edinburgh & The Lothians

Scotland

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.

Please Note:

Unfortunately, the route is not suitable for wheelchair users due to some steps and steep hills encountered along the way. However, those with pushchairs should find this manageable.

There is a section of Clues located in an area where dogs aren't allowed, so please don't bring your four-legged friends along unless a member of your group can wait with them at these Clues.

The Gardens at Clue 11 are locked at night, so make sure you leave plenty of daylight hours to complete your Trail!

The closest long stay pay and display car park to the start of the Trail is the St John's Hill NCP, just a 10 minute walk away. Or why not try one of Edinburgh's fantastic Park and Ride services?

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 of the Trail, and there are a myriad of cafes, restaurants, pubs and other eating establishments throughout the route.

Why not make a day of it by visiting Mary King Close, St Giles Cathedral or Edinburgh Castle along the way? You could even challenge yourself to another Trail adventure to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing city!
