COVID-19 Information

The Scottish Government has announced Covid-19 lockdown restrictions throughout mainland Scotland starting from Tuesday 5th January 2021 and lasting until at least the middle of February 2021.

This means our wee shop will be closed, and our walking tours suspended, for that period.

While these restrictions are in force, you can still book our tours for later in 2021, or purchase a wee treat for yourself or someone you know from our online shop.

We aim to reopen as soon as it is permissible (and we deem it safe) to do so. We will update this information as soon as the situation changes.

Edinburgh Courant souvenir paper

£7.50

Now you can own a piece of history, a full replica of the 4-page newspaper, which dedicates an unprecedented two pages to covering the bizarre and gruesome case of Burke and Hare, the two men who supplied Edinburgh's Medical School with perhaps as many as thirty bodies for dissection: a trade which they supplied by murdering the poor and desperate of Edinburgh's Cowgate slums.

This is an absolutely unique item, reproduced from the original 180-year old newspaper published within hours of the verdict being returned!
