About this product
- DescriptionEdinburgh has long been associated with beer. Its breweries have exported ales around the world for centuries and the city's myriad pubs have served local inhabitants for long eugh to have many a tale to tell. Some were the haunt of nefarious characters such as Burke and Hare and Deacon Brodie - the inspiration for RL Stevenson's Jeckyll & Hyde - while others attracted a more illustrious clientele, such as David Hume, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burns. From the graceful squares of the New Town to the narrow, twisting wynds and closes of the Old Town to the bustle and ise of Haymarket, local author and historian, Jack Gillon explores the watering holes of Scotland's capital, bringing their histories to life and revealing some of their darker secrets.
