Back cover text:

John Fee was a true storytelling artist, painting verbal pictures, setting off on digressions that turned out not to be digressions, moving effortlessly into a song or poem. He has uncovered little-known aspects of the Royal Mile along with long-forgotten characters who spring back to life through the storyteller’s art.

Following on from the acclaimed Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill volumes, this third instalment in the Journeys and Evocations series focuses on the extensive history and folklore surrounding Edinburgh’s atmospheric Old Town. Take a vivid trip with John Fee through Edinburgh’s Old Town as you’ve never seen it before, with this wonderful blend of prose, poetry, photography and incredible stories from another era of one of Edinburgh’s most renowned districts.


Edinburgh Old Town; Journeys and Evocations is a welcome addition to the seemingly endless explorations in print of a city which continues to fascinate and inspire citizens and visitor alike, and which will doubtless appeal to both.  Edinburgh Guide
