Join the intrepid duo, Clart (as in muck!) and the clean-hankied intellectual Mcbrain, who will lead you on a brilliant and witty dramatic romp through the wynds, courtyards and pubs of Edinburgh's Old and New Town. A Hilarious duel of wits across three hundred years of great writing and colorful characters.

The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour incorporates a dramatic script performed by two professional actors, not tour guides, reading from books.
