The Edinburgh Royal Mile Treasure Trail starts at:

Cockburn Street
City of Edinburgh

Please Note:

The Trail is friendly for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that this is a busy city centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.

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 and middle 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!
