Have you met Clart and McBrain? Performed in and out of Edinburgh's famous – and infamous – taverns and howfs, the tour takes the form of an impassioned debate between two fictional characters, Clart (the literary bohemian) and McBrain (the clean-hankied intellectual). In a lively duel of wits, they question the importance which the unique pub atmosphere offers creative and intellectual thought, while battling between perspectives and stories from Auld Reekie. 'The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour is my vote for the best way to spend an Edinburgh Evening!' **** (Rick Steves, Travel writer, USA).
