Sketching Tours - Sketching the West End
Capture in detail the historical architecture, unique heritage features and charming landscape of one of the capital's best kept secrets. Explore Edinburgh's West End with a sketch book in hand, using ink and watercolour to bring your visit to life.
With helpful instruction from Mark Kirkham, an iconic local artist known as the Edinburgh Sketcher, you will quickly pick up sketching skills while increasing confidence in your own artistic ability as you wynd through cobbled streets, Georgian crescents and stylish shop fronts.
All abilities welcome and encouraged!
Edinburgh Festival Voluntary Guides Association
Join us for a walking tour along the Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town.
Our expert guides will take you to the hidden corners of this fascinating district: the closes and courtyards, the neuks and crannies and places that you might never discover on your own. We'll tell you about its history and especially about the characters and historical figures who have made Edinburgh what it is.
All our guides are local people who love our city and are only too pleased to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you.
Our tours are completely free during the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe. At other times we make a small charge.
