Secret Edinburgh

Here's another little book of 'secrets' from JonGlez, this time about the ancient city of Edinburgh, Scotland.

There are now a number of these Unusual Guides, which go off the beaten tourist track and sniff out some truly amazing finds. This book has it all. You can discover hidden gardens, visit the strangest museums, decrypt mysterious Masonic markings, step inside an Icelandic lava grotto, travel to the Wild West of Morningside, and learn the secrets of Mrs Coade's stone. And much, much more.

This indispensible guide will be just as useful for those who think they know Edinburgh backwards, as it will be to those visiting for the first time.

Better still it's a long and slim volume that will fit in a handbag or backpack. The author is Edinburgh-born and she has worked as a journalist and in the film industry.


Secret Edinburgh an unusual guide, by Hannah Robinson, published by JonGlez,2016, paperback,  USD$19.95. ISBN 978 2 36195 148 1.
