As a UNESCO designated World Heritage City with stunning medieval, Georgian and Victorian architecture, it’s little wonder that Edinburgh has become a must snap destination for Instagrammers across the world. Here, we have teamed up with one of the country’s top Instagrammers, @IanGBlack, to lead guests on a dedicated Instagram Walking tour of Edinburgh that takes in the capital’s most photogenic spots. Our Instagram tour will help you capture Edinburgh in the best possible way, sending you home with lots of #BalmoralMoments to upload and share with your followers.

Guided 3.5 hour walking tour – departing from the hotel at 10am – will take you to the following Instagram hot spots: Calton Hill, Cockburn Street, Royal Mile, St Giles Cathedral, Camera Obscura city viewpoint, Victoria Street, Grassmarket, Vennel Steps and more.
