Edinburgh Underground is your tour-guide podcast. From Deacon Brodie, the Plague of 1646, and the ‘Underground’ itself, each week we’ll take a topic and find the real story behind the legend.
This week Edinburgh Underground investigates our most famous nickname: Auld Reekie. We take a look at the life of Robert Fergusson, the boy who coined the phrase. It’s a journey that takes us to Canongate Graveyard and reminds us that no matter how beautiful Edinburgh is, tragedy is never far from its past.
