Mystery Miles provide fun and flexible self-guided walking trails to help people of all ages explore the local area at their own pace, learning loads about regional history while tackling a series of playful puzzles to solve a light-hearted Murder Mystery.  


Far from the stodgy, informative style of most guides or the rigid structure of organised tours, our trails are designed to allow tourists and residents alike to discover the delights of their surroundings independently by taking part in an enthralling and interactive outdoors activity.  


It works by solving a series of clues, which will eliminate suspects and weapons from a list, as well as providing letters for a motive for the crime. The answers to the clues are placed all around the town, making you investigate your environment in detail. Once all the information is gathered, the fictitious murder will no longer be a mystery.


Mystery Miles was founded by Als Couzens and a friend in 2010 in St Andrews, Scotland. We have always enjoyed a good challenge and wanted to incorporate that with the beautiful surroundings we were lucky enough to find ourselves in. Due to the success of the original idea in St Andrews, we have completed a trail in Edinburgh and hope expland the idea through out the towns of Scotland.

Recently 2 brothers from Carlisle, Owain and Rhys Davis came up to try out 'Murder on the Mile' for the first time! It took them a while, but they managed to solve the crime with expert precision.


'Initinally we found it quite difficult, we got a bit excited and went far too fast. You do have to take your time and really think about everything or you might miss a clue!' Rhys said


'But once you figure it all out after a few clues its awesome and you really get into

it, nothing else mattered apart from finding the killer! Great fun and we will be trying St Andrews soon!'


'We would have done it alot quicker is Rhys listerned to me!' Owain  mentioned politely.
