About this activity

Immerse yourself in the magical world of Scotland’s mythical creatures and folklore stories. Go on a treasure hunt around the Old Town to find the last true unicorn in Edinburgh.

Full Description 

Discover Edinburgh’s folk stories and myths on this interactive treasure hunt.

Meet your guide at the City Chambers, where your game will begin. After reading a short introduction, get kitted out with all the tools you will need to complete the game. The kit comes in a folder that has all the clues and tools you need to work through and a map with a route to follow.

It all interacts with an app and you will be given the code for it too. Wander around the streets of the Old Town to solve clues and discover famous landmarks from a unique perspective. The itinerary includes City Chambers, Edinburgh University, St Giles Cathedral, and of course the iconic Edinburgh Castle for perfect photo opportunities. If you’re clever enough to make it to the end of the game, Scotland’s very last unicorn will be waiting for you.
