Edinburgh's Hidden Walks
People love walking the streets and every street tells a story...With 14 illustrated walks and over 400 full-colour photographs Edinburgh's Hidden Walks is packed with interesting details about the Scottish capital's history. These short walks are between 1 and 4 miles long, but packed with interest. Edinburgh has the highest concentration of listed buildings anywhere in the UK and was the birthplace of the Scottish Enlightenment – inspiring its moniker as the ‘Athens of the North’.
From grand Georgian squares to winding ‘wynds’, follow in the footsteps of authors and statesmen, murderers and revolutionaries and discover contemporary Edinburgh and its colourful history.
Detailed maps illustrate each walk and there is a useful list of local attractions (museums, galleries, historical houses) and details of the best cafés and pubs.
- 14 walking routes with instructions and maps
- Full-colour photographs of hidden gems and city attractions
- Key sights and locations clearly marked on map
