Description

The tour will start at the Netherbow Port, broached by the Jacobites before dawn on Tuesday, September 17th 1745 (just outside the World's End public house), proceed through the Grassmarket and into the Lawnmarket, the scene of a brutal street battle in early October 1745, before proceeding to the Mercat Cross where King James was proclaimed and where, 9 months later, the Jacobite standards were ceremonially burned after Culloden, to reveal the untold story of Jacobite Edinburgh.

  • Stairs: Information not supplied

Each venue can contain several space with different accessibly information. Visit the venue page for full venue accessibility info
