Description

You will need a team of two to four, internet access on your phone, your eyes and legs! We'll provide the kit and instructions. The game takes around two hours. It covers a good portion of the historic Old Town. You will learn the myths behind the faerie folk and the story of Scotland's national animal: the unicorn. In this magic class on mythology you will be spotting what's often overlooked, reading maps, solving little riddles and unravelling secrets. Good for magic apprentices from 0 to 110!

5 ways we would describe this experience: A rush (in a good way); educational in a fun way; for anyone! (we were a group of 3 24-28yr olds), a little fun brain teaser; great way to see the city in under 2hrs,

Great treasure hunt. Good fun for all the family. Challenging but not too difficult with good app interactivity. We had a real sense of achievement when we finished.
