An eminently readable guidebook, Edinburgh's Historic Mile is the perfect companion for exploring the rich and diverse wonders of Edinburgh's royal Mile. Informal and informative, witty and authoritative, here is an extravagant procession of all the tragedy and eccentricity in the history of Scotland's most famous street - from the sexy cannon of Edinburgh Castle, through the story of the Heart of Midlothian outside St Giles' Cathedral, all the way down to 17th century photocopying at Holyrood Palace.
Throughout the journey, fact is carefully seperated from fiction with incisive - and occasionally, downright cheeky - commentary on all the secrets of this amazing throughfare. For visitor and native, sedentary or on the street, this refreshingly alternative guide to Edinburgh's Royal Mile is also indispensible.
