Author offers unique chance to tour Rebus’s Edinburgh

Six spots available on writer’s exclusive journey

Fundraiser­s could have the unique chance to walk the mean streets of Rebus’s Edinburgh in the company of the inspector’s famous creator.

Fife author Ian Rankin is urging Scots to sign up for night-time fundraisin­g walks for cancer charity Maggie’s by offering a personal Rebus tour of the capital city as an incentive.

Everyone who has registered for one of the events by June 30 will be entered into a draw to win one of six places on the exclusive tour led by the author.

Ian, who recently visited the original Maggie’s Centre in the grounds of the Western General in Edinburgh, said: “The charity’s progressiv­e attitude to cancer care left me feeling incredibly hopeful while also astounded that they rely almost entirely on voluntary donations.”

Taking in 10 miles of each city, Maggie’s Culture Crawl Edinburgh and Maggie’s Culture Crawl Glasgow, both sponsored by Brodies LLP and both Year of Innovation and Design Festival of Architectu­re events, see walkers get the chance to explore the city after dark, discoverin­g cultural, architectu­ral and artistic delights along the way.
