Robert Louis Stevenson's gloriously vivid and entertaining portrait of Edinburgh continues to beguile the modern reader 150 years after it was first written.

With his interest in social history, legend and myth, Stevenson draws on his skills as a master storyteller and on his memories of growing up in Edinburgh.  A witty and irreverent tour guide, he leads us on an unforgettable journey through the city and brings to life its most engaging characters and landmarks.

'we are in the company of an agreeable and relaxed guide, giving us an anecdotal run-down on Edinburgh' Alexander McCall Smith.
