Find monuments and hidden secrets:

Once you've arrived at the next stop, you will have to solve a question: open your eyes and mind and use your location to find the right answer!

Local wonders you'll discover during this discovery game: Edinburgh Castle, the statue of David Hume and the picturesque St Giles' Cathedral, the smallest pub in Scotland, the statue of sir john steell and the Scotsmans steps.
