Duddingston is less than two miles from central Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Yet it has its own identity, and in 2019 it celebrates 60 years of its own conservation society. It has several outstanding grade-A Listed Buildings, including 12th century Duddingston Kirk and 18th century Duddingston House, and a raft of human stories about its residents. 

Duddingston is also home to Scotland’s oldest pub the Sheep Heid, Dr Neils ‘secret garden’ and Edinburgh’s oldest railway, the Innocent. Visitors can enjoy the wildlife of Duddingston Loch and its backdrop Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano. This book shows you how easily it can be explored on foot and by public transport.

With over 180 photographs, detailed mapping and concise, readable text, this short book reveals the human secrets of a part of Edinburgh known to few.
