Auld Reekie Trail

Discover everyday life in Georgian Edinburgh.

The Auld Reekie self-guided trail takes you back in time to the 1770s, a period when Edinburgh was changing dramatically with the planning and building of the New Town.

The trail brings together places that still give a flavour of life over 200 years ago, with the poetry of Robert Fergusson who captured everyday life in his writing. The trail explains some of the hidden corners of the city, such as the exclusive apartments of James Court, and Thistle Court reputedly the first houses built in the New Town.
