Weather in Edinburgh

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing” – Billy Connolly

The Edinburgh weather will certainly keep you on your toes, we recommend you always have a jacket close to hand.

Sun, rain, wind, snow and even the not so heavenly experience of living in a cloud, Edinburgh has all sorts of weather.

Because of this, it’s best to come to this city, and our walking tours, prepared for it. Our weather is also known to change multiple times a day, so be prepared to experience every season.

We do, however agree with Billy’s wisdom in more ways than one. Not only should you have good clothing in this city, but also every type of weather brings its own unique rewards. Be intrigued with silhouettes of church spires in the mist. Awe at the beautiful white parks in the snow. Enjoy spectacular clear and sunny views from Arthur’s Seat. Or even just appreciate the view of Edinburgh Castle with a dramatic sky behind it, which is blue, white, grey and black all at the same time.

We will run tours in any weather, unless deemed dangerous to the safety of our staff and guests.

Amusing stroll in Edinburgh. Lovely tour, Ben being a hilarious guide, telling things you don't find in a tourist book, interesting stories, showing hidden gems. Perfect, thanks.
