One of our team of professional guides will run with you up the Royal Mile, delving in and out of the various closes and wynds to tell you tales of Edinburgh’s fascinating and quirky history, at a pace to suit the group. It’s not a training session, if you want to go faster we go faster, if you want to go slower, we go slower, so no matter how fit you are, you can enjoy this tour with an active and tasty twist!
The Whisky Tour starts by the flags outside the dramatic Parliament buildings, set in the stunning Holyrood Park, and finishes at the prestigious Scottish Malt Whisky Society on Queen Street in the New Town. This tour is a great way to get an insight into the Capital city and enjoy sampling Scotland’s most famous export.
The Whisky Tour is ideal for those wanting to maximise the Scottish experience on their visit to Edinburgh, or locals looking for a new way to tour the city. The tour lasts 90 minutes in total, running for an hour then half an hour of whisky and chat to warm you from the inside as well. As lovers of whisky, our guides are able to talk you through the distillation process and the differences in tasting whiskies, and the diligent staff at the Scottish Malt Whisky Society will be able to answer your more distilled questions.
I went on a Winter Warmer Tour with a few friends on Sunday 27th November. James our tour guide was brilliant at bringing Edinburgh's history to life and making me realise that despite living in Edinburgh for over a year now, I knew nothing about it! The whisky tasting after the run was the perfect way to finish the evening. Thanks again, I'll be recommending to friends!
Thoroughly enjoyed the Winter Warmer run and whisky at the end. Different, but very enjoyable. And don't worry, the chat and commentary were faster than they expected you to be running. My first ever running tour, glad it was a good one.
On behalf of Carole, Douglas and myself I would like to thank James and the EMF Team for the very kind invitation to join James on the EMF Winter Warmer Running Tour. James made the Winter Warmer Running Tours extremely interesting. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. We would also like to thank yourselves for the lovely Hi-Vis Running Vests and the Fantastic Goody Bags. Our visit to the Scottish Malt Whisky Society on Queen Street was the perfect finish.
