After living in Edinburgh for the past 20 years, and with 15 years working as a qualified town planner, I am ideally placed to re-interpret the fascinating built environment at the heart of Scotland's historic capital city. This however is a comedy tour with a twist. A contested historical walking tour in fact. As we all know, today’s entertainment thirsty world is full of fake news, so capturing the mood of our times let me guide you through an Edinburgh of fantastical alternative ‘truths’. The Edinburgh that coulda, woulda shoulda been! Expect to saunter through Edinburgh’s once most sordid and disease-ridden streets, learn the top 7 causes of death in the city in the middle-ages, explore the area known to generations of locals as ‘Little Czechoslavakia’, find out the origins of the Edinburgh fringe and discover what the hokey-Cokey is all about! See if you can discern any ‘real facts’ amongst ‘my facts’. If you can you could win yourself one of Scotland’s tastiest delicacies!
I’m Angus! I am a Chartered Town Planner and a Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute that has studied, lived and worked in Edinburgh for more than 20 years. Accordingly I feel I am particularly well qualified to discuss, and more importantly ‘interpret’ the social, cultural , built and historic landscapes of Edinburgh with visitors to the city

Pretty good English (it’s a comedy tour - there are gags!)
My tour is designed to be funny, thought provoking and a refreshing change from the average. Recommended for 16 years +, tour is unfortunately not accessible to all due to Edinburgh’s many steps.
