Ian Rankin’s Edinburgh App

Ian Rankin’s Edinburgh is available via the App Store and Google Play.


Ian Rankin’s Edinburgh is a personal guided tour by the Number One Sunday Times Bestselling author of the city that inspires his writing. This free to download app can be used in Edinburgh or at home as a supplement to Ian’s novels. Specially created videos, audio, and lots of exclusive content including stunning photographs bring this fantastic city and Ian’s books to life.

There are four walking tours included which hit 30 key Edinburgh locations, each relevant to Ian’s novels and characters, particularly Inspector Rebus and Malcolm Fox. It’s also an informative and easy-to-use guide to the city itself, so that you don’t need to be a fan of Ian Rankin to really enjoy this app.

Fans can travel to Edinburgh in the photographs taken exclusively for the app, and will have the opportunity to see the actual locations that Ian uses in his plots (which don’t typically feature in guidebooks), including the police stations, murder scenes and hidden backstreets of Edinburgh, and you’ll be able to hear the author himself giving his views on Edinburgh’s ‘dark side’.
