Rebus – Secret Edinburgh (Rebustours)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

We start off cheerily at the city morgue in this entertaining and informative walking tour of Edinburgh, loosely based around locations used by Ian Rankin in the popular Rebus series. Colin, the affable and quite eccentric host, leads his group around the Royal Mile and Holyrood, dispensing historical facts and reading extracts from Ian Rankin. This tour would be a really good way for a visitor to get their bearings in Edinburgh both geographically and historically; it’s pretty light on Rebus, but instead there is a strong emphasis on architecture and literature with a visit to Robert Ferguson’s grave. On a nice day this is a great way to spend two hours whether or not you’re a Rebus fan.

The Royal Oak, 5 – 29 Aug, 3.00pm (5.00pm), £9.00 – £10.00, fpp186.
