There are many walking tours of Edinburgh and they all offer a similar stroll around the key historical landmarks. However, would you prefer one which will leave you with a unique and special connection to the city? That is the goal of this literature tour.

Edinburgh's contribution to literature is unparalleled; it opened the first circulating library in the UK in 1725. Every year it hosts the world’s largest book festival. It is also the birthplace for some of the greatest writers in the history of English language. It is for these reasons that in 2004; Edinburgh was named the world's first UNESCO City of Literature.

The tour lasts just over two hours and it involves visiting locations which have a connection to the literary heritage of the city. There will be 12 stops and at each one, I will give a 5/10 minute explanation of the location's connection to literature. Each stop will be a place that has been a dwelling, or has provided inspiration, for a famous Scottish author or poet. The authors/poets that will be covered are Robert Fergusson, Robert Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, JK Rowling plus 10 others.

In summary, hearing how famous authors and poets have been inspired by Edinburgh offers guests the chance to get to know the beautiful city in a way that is unusual, insightful and memorable.

My name is Cathal Dorrian and I have lived in Edinburgh since 1990. I love the city and over the years I have learned how it has made a remarkable contribution to English/Scottish literature. The aim of this tour is to share this learning with you. In addition, on offer is a stroll around one of the most beautiful cities in the world. My hope is that the tour will be an experience that you find original, rewarding and educational.

My ability to offer this tour derives from the fact that I have read extensively the work of the authors and poets that feature on it. I have also carried out years of research on their lives in terms of background, upbringing, connection to Edinburgh and how they were critically received.

The meeting place, and first stop on the tour, will be outside Camera Obscura on the Royal Mile, which is just down from the Castle. The route of the tour will take us to the bottom of the Royal Mile, to Canongate, south to George Square and finishes at the Greyfriar's Kirkyard cemetery. The distance is about 2 and a half miles and it will take just over 2 hours. So it may not be suitable for people who would struggle to walk long distances.

I had an amazing time with Cathal on our tour. Even if I didn't know anything about Scottish literature, Cathal managed it very well. He made the tour very interesting. I would recommend it to everybody because it is not just about talking and listening the stories. It's also about exploring new wonderful places which I would have never found alone. Big thanks to Cathal. He really likes Edinburgh's literature and you can feel it 😊

Cathal was very warm and friendly and took us to a lot of interesting places through the city. He had the journey well planned out and we got to know a lot about the town's historic figures. He even had poems and verses written in notes which were hilarious. I'd definitely recommend taking the tour especially if you like walking through the town as well !

Great tour! Cathal’s passion for Scottish literature is infectious. He knows his stuff, and yet is perfectly accessible for those who don’t know anything. Cathal repeatedly showed me incredible sites that I had walked by ignorantly several times. I left wanting to dive in to to so many of the great works by Edinburgh’s three Roberts and many other groundbreaking writers. And yes, I went straight to the bookstore to get started!

I felt very privileged to be the only person on the tour. I liked hearing how the various writers and thinkers influenced each other and to imagine them walking the same streets we did. I loved the walking and Cathal was very generous with his time. Very much a dialogue rather than a lecture when was so much more enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommended!

Cathal received us with a smile and took us around the city telling us all about the authors and their work in an entertained way. Our tour was for two hours but he continued telling us anecdotes and stories for another two extra hours. A very nice and welcoming tour for two tourists like us. He promised a list with all the stories of the authors and we received it the next day!

Cathal a une très bonne connaissance du sujet et sait la transmettre d'une façon sympatique et amicale. A la fin de la séance il nous a promis une liste de renseignements et references sur les differents sujets abordés, et il nous l'a envoyée par mail le soir même. Très interessant et utile pour compléter notre vision du sujet. Merci!
