Wat je gaat doen

This tour is about Scotland’s legal and political history. Much of the history centred around one small area of Edinburgh.
Meeting in the Lawnmarket, the home of the Scottish High Court, Supreme Court and High Court of Justiciary and unknown to many the home of the original Scottish Parliament.
The tour commences with a short stroll around the square exploring the significance of the many buildings. The surrounding monuments to Adam Smith, David Hume, Buccleugh and others and discussing their influence on modern philosophy and jurisprudence.
A visit to one of the magnificent court buildings (mon to fri/sat).
Leaving the square and walking to where Historic legal trials would invariably end and the site of Edinburgh’s numerous execution sites. Stories abound of riots, failed hangings attempted escapes.
Finally ending at the graveyard where most accused ended or not.
The tour times and dates can be varied to suit. If tour times or dates dont suit you, send me can enquiry. I can usually accomodate
Other things to note

I have a deep and exhaustive understanding of Scotland it’s history and politics both recent and ancient. I am a trained actor and a great raconteur. So if it’s a great story you want with deep inside knowledge i’m Your man.

Was so informative and very friendly. A top host and very considerate of my mum who uses a crutch! He was able to alter the way we went round the tour so we still got a brilliant load of information but stayed mostly on level ground. What a great tour!

This was an average tour of some un-average parts of Edinburgh. Gordon was friendly, easy-going, ready to answer questions. However, the oratory seemed basic to me. I expected more expert knowledge and anecdotes.

Gordon was a fantastic guide, hitting some of the hidden treasures in Edinburgh. Perfect for people interested in politics, court systems, or just the history of Scotland in general, Gordon takes you behind the scenes and off the beaten path, while also touching on more traditional highlights along the way.
