The Auld Toun Blog explores Edinburgh’s stories and gives updates about our latest news.
We are excited to announce that Auld Toun Walking Tours will launch a tour in August – Evil Deeds: Burke and Hare.
We offer historical walking tours of Edinburgh’s UNESCO Heritage Listed Old Town (Auld Toun in Scots).
Auld Toun Walking Tours was founded in 2018 by writer and teacher, Steve Porter. He is a screenwriter, author of political/football/travel fiction, poetry and short stories.
Steve loves a good story and enjoys creating tours that delve into Edinburgh’s history – one tour, one story, one focus. Steve was captivated by the story of Burke and Hare and created the tour Evil Deeds: Burke and Hare. The dark tale of the two serial killers reflects Edinburgh’s social history and fascination with gory headlines.
