About Walkie Talkie Tours

Walkie Talkie Tours was formed in 2016 by Brian Morley after working as a guide/warden for eleven years at The Palace of Holyroodhouse, previously Queen Elizabeths and now King Charles official home in Scotland.

I formed the business because I wanted to show visitors to Edinburgh parts of the city that other companies generally ignore and open the city more. All these tours are recommended for adults only.

With enough notice a tour can be arranged and costed for you if you have any specific wishes for a tour.

Our Tours

The Secret Past of Edinburgh’s Old Town

In this tour we discover sites linked to Susan Ferrier, a Scottish 19th century author, also sites linked to the local Jewish population, Scottish links to slavery and a bar that has been the venue for some of rock musics biggest names.

Scottish Whisky Tasting in Scotlands’ Capital.  

In this tour we go to 4 different bars, usually in the city centre and taste 4 different whiskies from four different whisky regions of Scotland.  During this tour you won’t just taste this whisky but hopefully learn about Scottish whisky.

Taste Scotland in an Evening of Food and Drink

People think of Scottish food and drink and think it is just whisky and haggis. That’s not the case. This is a food and drink tour full of indulgencies to sample with some venues very much local businesses, not just created for tourism.

      Art in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town

Edinburgh is a very artistic city now and in the past and the much overlooked New Town has lots in it. This is not a tour about paintings but perhaps the art and the stories of the people who created that art from the 18th century.

An Injection of Edinburgh Medicine 

Edinburgh is full of medical history and not all of it is simple and straight forward.  On this tour we discover everything from Ground breaking female doctors and Burke & Hare to chloroform parties and Sherlock Holmes.

Edinburgh’s Old and New Town in a Day 

If you only have a day in Edinburgh I am able to arrange a tour for you. This will take in The Old and New Towns and cover history and stories of both areas. There will be as much time for a break as required and all this is done at your own pace.

Generally I’ll pick you up from what is usually your city centre accommodation but another spot can always be arranged if this is easier for you.

Our favorite part of this tour was the way that our tour guide, Brian Morley, made every bit of the history come alive. He was so knowledgeable and tailored to the tour to our interests and there wasn't any area of history, art, or culture that Brian didn't know. And he had the best personality to deal with tired tourists. He was so funny and relatable and knew every building and stone in Edinburgh. We walked through old Edinburgh, new Edinburgh, saw castles, learned the history, and Brian pointed out great restaurants and pubs for the rest of our journey! Delightful!

Brian was an excellent host! The six participants in our small group all had questions and Brian was very helpful with each. The pies were an excellent treat and we had fun comparing chips with different condiments. We enjoyed the MacLean's shortbreads too! The whiskey and beer tasting were fun.

Participated in an outstanding tour held by Brian Morley. He read the group’s personalities well, and it felt like we received a specially curated tour “built just for us.” He was very attentive to our questions and requests. We felt very welcomed and greatly enjoyed our host’s company and wit. The tour went by too quickly. It was full of laughter and warmth. It was like being in the company of an old friend.
