Royal Mile Edinburgh Map


I have pinpointed all the sites of the Royal Mile Edinburgh, things to see and places to visit.

The Royal Mile starts at Edinburgh Castle and ends at the Palace of Holyrood House. The Streets the make the Royal Mile are Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street, Canongate, Abbey Strand and Horse Wynd. Each area has its own identity and there are many things to see and do while searching through the closes and wynds of the the Royal Mile.

Edinburgh city centre extends approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres) from west to east and the same south to North.

The City Centre and Royal Mile are the main shopping areas and where the main attractions can be found.

The areas included in Edinburgh city centre are the Royal Mile, Grassmarket, New Town, Old Town, Southbridge,

North Bridge, Princes Street and Gardens, Mound, Calton Hill. 

The thick blue line is to show where the Nor Loch once filled the area. The Black line is where the City Wall stood to protect the residents from invaders. Starting where David's Tower stood and finishing at the side of the Nor Loch in the East beside the Trinity church below Calton hill.
