This circular walk is roughly 3 miles long and will take you round some of the homes and hospitals from Edinburgh's medical past.


This walking tour was developed by a College Fellow, Roger Smith, for participants in a course in Geriatric Medicine. Dr Smith has now recorded this tour as an audio guide and the College has made it available online, with maps and written guidance and information, to enable others to enjoy the historical guide to the medical history of Edinburgh's Old and New Towns.
