About Edinburgh Guided Tour
Be assured that Stuart and Richard’s family roots are steeped in the history of Edinburgh and Scotland. Stuart’s great grandfather and great-great uncle, together, introduced blended whisky to the world. The Usher family had connections with such notables as Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, and even Prime Minister William Gladstone!
The Ushers have a fund of humorous anecdotes and stories around the history of our lovely city.
Stuart and Richard give you inside knowledge on what to see, where to go, and things to do in Edinburgh.
They normally start the Edinburgh walking tour at the Usher Hall, Scotland’s premier concert Hall, that was donated to the city by Stuart’s great uncle.
They take you on a tour showing you many of the major historical, cultural, and architectural sites of interest in Edinburgh and also sites associated with some of Edinburgh’s most famous characters.
