Secret Edinburgh

‘A city that seems to sum up the human condition.’

~ Ian Rankin

Here’s a lovely little film about Edinburgh, featuring the thoughts of novelist Ian Rankin. Β He sums up the atmosphere here perfectly…

  4. I love this film! I haven’t been to Edinburgh for years and years and would love to visit again. I was pleased to see (and listen to) Ian Rankin as I have just started reading one of his Rebus books – ‘Set in Darkness’.

    1. I do hope you make it back again some time! πŸ˜€ Am thinking of embarking on a Rebus journey – have never read any of them books & it seems rude not to!! πŸ“šπŸ˜€

      1. This is only the second one I’ve read. It took me a while to get into the first one – ‘Dead Souls’ – but eventually I was hooked! Rankin’s descriptions of the city and Scotland in general are excellent – he has a poet’s eye – but if all you ever knew about Edinburgh came from his books you’d be reluctant to set foot in such a violent and seedy city! Fortunately, commonsense prevails!

      2. Lol! That’s the trouble with crime fiction, isn’t it – If we believed what we read and watched, we would never even set foot in somewhere like Midsomer!!

  5. I’ve always had the sense that Edinburgh is a place of decorum and grace. I would love to visit it some time. If only more of our cities could be designed around these values.
