Step away from Edinburgh's tourist eateries and join the locals.

Stockbridge is charming, with a chance to explore Scotland’s finest cheeses, chocolate and seafood. Broughton is more eclectic and Bohemian, with whisky sampling and amazing marshmallow tasting and a non-scary introduction to haggis

 

You’ll visit between five and six different food and drink establishments. Food portions are starter size, but we would say hold off having breakfast! Alcohol (or soft drinks) and fine Scottish tap water is included.

Sustainability and values

These food safaris are all about sampling locally sourced produce, with a focus on supporting sustainable, independent suppliers. By sampling small portions there is minimal food waste. Walking, by its very nature, is a sustainable and eco-friendly way of exploring a city.
