The hunt starts in the city square, right in the middle of the city centre just off High Street, at the bottom of Reform Street. This is within 2 minutes walk of all city centre hotels, the bus and train station and the stops of all major bus routes in the city.

There is ample parking available with the closest multi-storey car parks at the Overgate Centre, Gellatly Street and the Gallacher Retail Park.

There are no stairs on this tour, but there are some narrow cobbled paths and some roads to cross without dips in the pavement. The route runs from the High St, down Castle St, along Exchange St, up Commercial St then along the Seagate to Peter St. There are some points with high levels of traffic which can cause lots of background noise. If you have any concerns about accessibility then please get in touch with us.
