Join this free 90-minute stroll through Edinburgh’s Old Town:

Assembling initially inside Dovecot Studios, we trace the development of shopping in the capital from linen halls, luckenbooths and lawnmarkets to draperies, department stores and contemporary design interventions en route.

Dress for the weather with footwear to tackle Edinburgh’s rambling streets.

This Saturay Stroll is part of our regular ‘creative cluster’ of free events bookable on Eventbrite which also features our Twilight Talks about Design (Thursday 16 January at Dovecot) Wild Weaving Workshop and Weavers Tales (Friday 17 January at Summerhall) and our Exhibtion Highlights Tour (Saturday 18 Januray 1130 preceding the walk at Dovecot). Details of the full programme of OLS Edinburgh Events and background to the exhibtion can be found on our website

This Saturday Stroll is the latest of the Walks by Design established by Journeys in Design in 2015, celebrating creative interventions past and present during 90 minute walks in urban landscapes throughout Scotland.
