A bit of history, a bit of trivia and a wee dash of stand-up. Born and bred in Edinburgh, I worked as a staff reporter, feature writer and cinema editor on The Scotsman for 17 years and subsequently wrote regularly for the Guardian and London Times. I have written and edited several books, including The Times on Cinema and On Location - The Film Fan's Guide to Britain and Ireland.

Brian was great. Good information and some fun stories presented in a really enthusiastìc and engaging way. The tour may only be for 70 minutes but we never felt rushed. We thoroughly recommend this tour as an introduction to Edinburgh.
