The award winning Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour was the first literary tour launched in Edinburgh in 1996! Since then it has carried in excess of 150,000 satisfied customers on a dramatic literary trail across Edinburgh. It is regarded by many as a pioneer in its field, and a "Must-see" cultural attraction in guide books throughout the world. Why does it stand out from all the rest?Performed by professional actors, not academics or guides reciting from books, it represents great value for money and a very high entertainment factor! Join the intrepid duo, Clart (as in muck!) and our clean-hankied intellectual McBrain, who will lead you on a brilliant and witty dramatic romp through the wynds, courtyards and pubs of Edinburgh's Old and New Town. A hilarious duel of wits across three hundred years of great writing and colourful characters! The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour incorporates a dramatic script performed by two professional actors , and is the only tour of its kind in the United Kingdom. Performed by several Scottish based professional actors, the work spans a period from the early eighteenth to the mid-twentieth century. The tour reaches beyond the well known figures of Burns, Scott and Stevenson and includes some of the more colourful, literary characters who have added humour and wit throughout the ages to the unique tavern life of The Old and The New Town's.
I am the founder of The Scottish Literary Tour Trust Ltd, a company which I set up to promote Scottish Literature to the widest possible global market. I trained and worked as a professional actor and early in my career I realised the vast potential that professionally trained actors can bring to the cultural tourism experience. The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour has now been running for twenty three years and has won major awards both within the tourism industry and beyond. Since the launch of the tour in 1996, The Trust has rolled out several new literary tours throughout Scotland - exploring a landscape, whether urban or rural, but always working with actors in their inimitable role of animator. The Trust published it's first significant volume entitled "Land Lines" in 2003, published by Polygon and sold throughout the world.

The tour and opening scene starts at The Beehive Inn, in The Grassmarket, Edinburgh. Then weaves its way through The Old Town, stopping off at The Jolly Judge for a light refreshment,with performances from our leading actors (Sir Walter Scott etc). The tours' destination is The New Town and can finish up at a variety of different pubs, depending on various factors, including the weather, very much moving from the literary past into the present.
