Hunt for clues as you explore on the Edinburgh self guided themed Treasure Trail and locate the long lost treasure!

You'll discover all manner of things that you never knew were there as the whole family work together to spot and solve the clues on this treasure hunt. The clear directions will lead you on a fixed 1.75 mile route which you complete in your own time and at your own pace. Along the way, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the clues. You'll find them on plaques, buildings, monuments and other interesting features around the city.

Ideal for all ages from 6+ to adult, there's something for everyone as you spot clues, solve puzzles and learn fascinating snippets of local history. Each clue answer will eliminate a map location on your fictional treasure map. When you get to the end, the one remaining map location is where the long lost treasure is buried. You can check your answer online to see if you are right!

The Edinburgh Treasure Trail is just one of many across the region: for your next adventure, why not choose a spy mission or be a detective for the day on a mystery Trail!

This Trail can be instantly downloaded as a PDF file for same-day-Trailing-fun, or sent out to you in the post. See Treasure Trails website for more details.
