NEW TOWN TOUR ~ 2 Hours
The New Town came into being because the Old Town outgrew its medieval city walls in the 18th century. An architectural competition to reflect the Age of Enlightenment was won by a young 26-year- old called James Craig. His ambitious master plan for the first New Town, saw it built across the valley now occupied by Princes Street Gardens and the main railway line.
