DCC Skinner Tour
Edinburgh's Criminal Underbelly

Bringing Quintin Jardine’s famous Edinburgh detective from the books and onto the streets of Edinburgh!
The very first sentence in book one is – As a city Edinburgh is a two-faced bitch! This tour sees Edinburgh as a city of stark contrasts: on one side there is the cultured gentile set, on the other a darker sinister underbelly that lurks in alleyways, houses of ill repute and possibly places of power! Bob Skinners lives in both worlds, and we take you on a journey through both sides of Edinburgh to relive Skinner crime locations & incidents within central Edinburgh, mixed in the quirky tales about Edinburgh and a bit of street theatre.
Tour starts inside the Roxburghe Hotel Charlotte Square and finishes outside the Writers Museum just of the Lawnmarket in the Royal Mile.

Did you hear the ghostly sound of screams?
While anxious faces haunt your dreams?
Or lie in fear as shadows linger,
And feel the chill of dead men’s fingers?

The corpse lies cold in shallow earth,
It paid the price in blood and death.
Slain for greed or love’s revenge,
The ghosts must wait to be avenged.

And who will set their souls to rest?
Avenge their death and see them blessed?
No angel pure, just mortal sinner
He’s just a man... a man called Skinner
