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, Danny Boyle’s film, to be premiered on 27 January, based on the sequel to Trainspotting. It could be good. Don’t under-estimate Boyle’s creativity.

Come along on the T2 Special Tour on the day before the premiere – click on The Walks page for details.

Journalists and commentators needing a discussion on T2 should email me from the CONTACT page for an email or telephone conversation. On request I could arrange to go on location.
