What's On


Prize Info

Join EMF Running Tours and three of your friends on a chilly winters’ evening and warm up with a 5k jog through the historical city of Edinburgh, followed by a cosy whisky tasting. One of EMF's professional guides will run with you up the Royal Mile, delving in and out of the various closes and wynds to tell you tales of Edinburgh’s fascinating and quirky history, at a pace to suit the group. It’s not a training session, if you want to go faster the group can go faster, if you want to go slower, the group can go slower, so no matter how fit you are, you can enjoy this tour with an active and tasty twist. The Winter Warmer Tour starts by the flags outside the dramatic Parliament buildings, set in the stunning Holyrood Park, and finishes at the prestigious Scottish Malt Whisky Society on Queen Street in the New Town.  This tour is a great way to get an insight into the Capital city and enjoy sampling Scotland’s most famous export.  

The Winter Warmer Tour is ideal for those wanting to maximise the Scottish experience on their visit to Edinburgh, or locals looking for a new way to tour the city. The tour lasts 90 minutes in total, running for an hour then half an hour of whisky and chat to warm you from the inside as well.  As lovers of whisky, our guides are able to talk you through the distillation process and the differences in tasting whiskies, and the diligent staff at the Scottish Malt Whisky Society will be able to answer your more distilled questions.
