The Alternative Pub Crawl is not your typical night out. With five characteristic Scottish bars, along with complementary shots, whisky & novelty kilts, this crawl is a Scottish Initiation Experience not to be missed.

On the tour, a total of five bars will be visited. While the choice of bars depends on the day, you will go to a local Edinburgh pub, a traditional Scottish pub, an underground rock bar, a bar where travellers hang out, a bar made from recycled materials and on old church that was transformed into a live music venue.

At the last bar, you'll have time to dance or to simply chat to your new friends you made on the pub crawl!

Spend 30-45 minutes in each place, giving you plenty of time to finish your drink. Each bar will also involve an activity which could be various drinking games, Ceilidh dancing or bagpipe playing.

Don't miss out on this unusual Scottish pub crawl!
