Edinburgh City of Literature Trust is partnering with Mercat Tours to launch the Spark 100 walking tour. As part of the centenary celebrations, you will get the chance to walk in the footsteps of Spark’s Edinburgh with your expert Mercat Tours guide. You’ll hear of the 17th-century merchant who provided for Spark’s education, you’ll visit the stone dedicated to her in Makar’s Court and you’ll see the ‘upraised fingers’ of St. Giles which threatened her observant Sandy.
Walk starts at 5pm and lasts 1h30.
Start: Mercat Cross, High Street (currently under renovation) Finish: Hunter Square
