Edinburgh’s Jacobite Weapons Tour is approximately 2 hrs long and retraces the steps of the Jacobite rebellion as we ponder what could have been. Get hands-on with history as you see and hear about the weapons of the Highlander army during the rebellion. Learn about the men who defied the norms and fought for their conscience and country.

It’s one thing to hear stories or see the history behind glass cases in museums but it’s another thing to hold it in your hands. In this tour authenticity is everything, run by local guides, we can answer your questions, recommend things to do, places to eat and all the best bars in the city.

Where to find us

Justin was our tour guide, he is very funny and looks great too. The tour just rattled along, he had a lot of stories, some funny and filthy but all interesting. He also had some recommendations for other things to do and places to see. Would highly recommend this tour and if we go back to Edinburgh one day, we'd go again.

We did the walking tour on an afternoon and loved every second. Justin was our tour guide and he was fantastic. We went around a number of key sites in Edinburgh, discussing them, the history of the city and some of the most notable names from Scottish past. The tour was very interesting and we got a lot out of it, discussing the tour and what we learnt for hours afterwards. A must do! Would encourage visitors to make this their first activity and you find out about where is the worth the money and good to see, and where maybe isn't so needed.

I stumbled across the sign, next tour was in 10 minutes, glad I stuck around for it! Justin was very informative and knowledgeable...and hilarious. It's a great introduction to Edinburgh, wish I had known about it when I first arrived and not on my last day, came across some places I would have loved to have visited or looked into further, next time

WOW, what a blast. This tour was fun informative and just did not want it to end. Adult themed, but so worth it. Justin is knowledgeable, and easy going. Definitely go on this walking tour if ever in Edinburgh.
