Autumn is a special time to enjoy Edinburgh: the scenery looks spectacular, the trees are turning yellow and orange and the crisp blue days are perfect for exploring. Plus, without the summer tourists there’s a little more space to enjoy the city!

Treasure Hunt Edinburgh is the perfect way to enjoy Edinburgh this autumn!

Edinburgh’s full of hidden gems, but they’re easy to miss. Our carefully designed route around the city will show you the best bits! See the main sites like St Giles' Cathedral and Greyfriars Kirkyard. Spot things other people don't notice like the morbid contraptions defending against grave robbers.

A treasure hunt works more like a game than a walking tour. Have you got what it takes to solve the cryptic clues around Edinburgh? You’ll be put to the test by Captain Bess, a bossy pirate character who sends messages to your phones!

How does it work? ☠️

It’s designed for adults, so you’ll have a laugh together. Crews can be any size, although it might be more fun to split into smaller groups and see who can be the first to solve the final clue! (8+ are welcome too if you want to make a family day of it - 15 and under go FREE).

You’ll be testing out your essential pirate skills - following treasure maps, solving cryptic clues, and looking carefully around the city to find the answers. You’ll be answering to Captain Bess, your bossy pirate leader who’ll send messages to your phones to guide you along the way.

“...exploring the city this way was so much more fun for us than going on a group tour. It was such a great and memorable experience, I can't wait to go to more cities they offer treasure hunts in.”

Excellent Team Building Activity

If you’re looking for something different to do with your team, Treasure Hunt Edinburgh could be just the thing. You’ll work together to solve clues, discovering new things about familiar places. You’ll be able to plan stops along the way to have a cuppa together and get to know each other outside of the work environment. Whether yours is an in-person or remote office, Treasure Hunt Edinburgh is an excellent way to build your team. The route has been designed to avoid steps, but there may be cobbles and steep parts - get in touch if you’ve got any questions.
