Discover hidden gardens and clandestine art that even the neighbours overlook, visit the strangest of museums, get water-boarded in a prototype Jacuzzi and traumatised by Rabelaisian rafters, decrypt mysterious Masonic markings, step inside an Icelandic lava grotto, travel to the Wild West of Morningside, learn the secrets of Mrs Coade’s stone, sniff out the dogs more dazzling than Greyfriars Bobbie, track down traces of Edinburgh’s Great Exhibition…
…and the guide is not restricted to the capital – East Lothian is mentioned too. Have you seen the Jonah and the Whale mural in Musselburgh? The curious teddy-bear shaped hedges in a quiet lane in Inveresk?
An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew the city well, or who would like to explore the curiosities that the area has to offer. Copies of Secret Edinburgh can be purchased from the following booksellers:
