Some of the stops on the Red Route are:

  • Grassmarket: get off here to see Edinburgh's local market and mingle with the Scottish population.
  • John Knox House: at this stop you will be right in front of this historic house which is believed to have been owned and lived in by the Protestant reformer John Knox in the 16th century.
  • Johnston Terrace: this is one of the highlights of the tour as you will see Edinburgh Castle in all its splendour.
  • Canongate: if you choose to get off at this stop, you will see the impressive Holyrood Palace. This palace was the Queen's residence when she was in Scotland.

Relax and get your camera ready to take photos and selfies as souvenirs. Plus, with these tickets, you'll get discounts on a range of local attractions.

Please note that the total journey takes around 60 minutes and the bus usually runs every 30 minutes. Also, if you have bought the tickets and have not used them, they are valid for twelve months.
