Two great options are normally available for private bookings:

1. The Classic: THE DEID DUG TOUR.

Everyone remembers the Deid Dug scene from the book and the film. Stand in the line of fire! The on-location passages from the book come thick and fast in this Leith Town Centre tour, including Leith Central Station for the T-word, and usually ending on the bench where Spud sits at the top of Shore. We discuss the film as we go.

Tours can be customised as required; for example focussing on addiction, or HIV/AIDS, or the distinctive social/community issues in Leith that gave rise to the Trainspotting generation. I normally have access to an excellent indoor facility for a round-table presentation and discussion.

See the Guestbook for comments from people who have done the tour. The Student Newspaper liked it!

Basic charge: £7.50 per person. Minimum charge: £15 per tour.

  • Group rates for parties of 4 or more.
  • Start-point: normally in the courtyard of the Dockers’ Club, 17-17a Academy Street, EH6 7EE. This is the setting of Renton’s uncomfortable evening after doing cold turkey.
