Places to stop along the way

Deacon Brodies, The Tron Square, The World's End Pub and Boyd's Entry.

Best time of day

Evening or night.


Part of the route is pedestrianised, but not all. Be mindful of traffic.

This adventure is a work of fiction with a mature narrative.


Mostly directions. Not really much of a story. Tells you about a ‘to do’ in places but then says ‘that’s for later’ but doesn’t say anything later!
