Three Edinburgh taxi drivers have graduated as elite tour guides, receiving their ‘Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage drivers’ Tour Guiding Certificates at a ceremony in the City Chambers after spending 12 weeks learning all there is to know about Edinburgh, its history, its buildings and its people.

The black cab drivers can now take tourists and visitors on a unique and personalised tour of the capital.

Simon Reid, David Watt, course director Bob McCulloch and Dougie Gray all feature in the photos of the  cab taken in Holyrood Park.
