Welcome to Leith Walks, home of Trainspotting Tours.

When I lift my head from finalising my book provisionally titled ‘A Trainspotter’s Guide’ (which should be out in 2018, 25 years on from the launch of Trainspotting the book) there’s nothing I like better than taking people on a Trainspotting tour of Leith. There’s not much about Trainspotting I don’t know, but I’m constantly surprised by some new angle or insight coming from my customers. Tours can be quite vivacious! See more on The Walks page. The next programme of tours will be in the Leith Festival in June.

Meantime, they are all talking about T2. I saw it on the first night of general release, here in Leith. I was prepared to be disappointed. I wasn’t. Never under-estimate Danny Boyle.
