The Riding of The Marches: September 11th

The historically-rooted Riding of The Marches will make a return this year for the first time since 2020.

The march is a re-enactment of inspections of the city's boundaries that would take place between 1579-1718, to protect Edinburgh's land. During thie time, neighbours were told to meet at the Lord Provost's house to join in. The event is free and can be watched from the pavements on the Royal Mile. Learn more here.
