My girfriend and I went on the 3-day skye tour. Paul was our driver and guide. The tour was simply great. We saw many viewpoints and got enough time to explore them and take nice photos. We stayed for 2 nights at a cozy guest house in Portree; lovely wee town. Make sure to book your restaurants in advance, because... More

We booked this trip in advance to avoid disappointment. We had a fantastic driver which made the trip great, since it is quite a longish one, but with his funny character & all the information he was providing to us, it was difficult to get bored while driving through the marvelous Highlands.

Any question we could think of, he had an answer to. He has a wonderful sense of humor and such a great personality. We couldn't have asked for a better guide and... More

Two friends and I booked the Hadrian's Wall tour this past Saturday! Before the tour even started we were off to a great start--the company normally has a minimum of five reservations in order to go forward with a tour but because we were so excited to go the company went ahead with our tour even though there were only...

My four friends and I had an excellent experience during our tour of Sterling Castle and the highland lochs. Our guide, Iain, was a true expert, and he made our tour educational and fun. We highly recommend Heart of Scotland Tours, and we will use the company in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the warm hospitality and patience of the tour conductor. The sights were, of course, magical! I wish we had more stops though for taking scenic pictures.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
