Edinburgh Royal Mile DIY Walking Tour
The Edinburgh Royal Mile DIY Walking Tour is completely wheelchair accessible.
The Edinburgh Royal Mile DIY Walking Tour covers a distance of just, yes, you guessed it, 1 mile (well, just over actually).
A simple 20 minute stroll.
However, factor in a journey time of at least 2-4 hours – as you should definitely visit Edinburgh Castle at the start, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the end (as well as a recommended visit to The Scotch Whisky Experience, along the way).
Plus, if you have also opted to stay at the Radisson Blu Edinburgh City Centre (also most-definitely recommended – as it is right on the Royal Mile), you can use your very own room for a well-earned pitstop.
Although in theory, the walk along the Royal Mile can be made in either direction, you should be aware that the Royal Mile is a actually a rather steep hill (with Edinburgh Castle at the top of the hill, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the bottom). So it really is best to start at Edinburgh Castle – and it’s all downhill from there.
