Let’s get hunting!  Travel differently with this list of experiences outside of Edinburgh, Scotland.  Told through the eyes and extensive exploration of David Weinczok, you will be captivated and googling (just click the links below) the places mentioned.  Most of the locations mentioned are dog friendly – so bring the pups!  They are Calvin, David’s pup, approved!

Get outside city center Edinburgh, Scotland and explore these lesser known and magical places.  Really, a hidden Pegasus carved into the roof of an underground Iron Age Roman cold storage cellar, a hidden Eagle set at a romantic glen, a herd of misplace Highland Coos and more!  Take these tips from David Weinczok and an ordinance map to make sure you and your little explorers find these historical gems.

An adoptive Scot originally from Canada, history has fired my imagination since childhood – nightly readings of The Lord of the Rings surely helped. Ever since, I have aspired to live in and contribute to a place where epic history can be found around every corner. You won’t find me at many gold-laden palaces; I’m more the ‘windswept ruin atop a seaside crag’ sort of guy. And for that, Scotland is undoubtedly the place to be.

I now work in Edinburgh and around Scotland as a presenter, writer, live broadcaster, heritage consultant, and tour guide. I’ve chatted about castles on BBC Radio Scotland, am a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, and am working on a book about Scotland’s early castles in collaboration with an incredible 3D illustrator (details to follow!). Hugh MacDiarmid, Scotland’s most influential 20th century writer, mused that “There are plenty of ruined buildings in the world, but no ruined stones.” Every stone tells a story, and I aim to share them in an attempt to fan the sparks that started my own journey.

On this site I’ll share images and stories of the castles I’ve visited, blog posts exploring characters, themes, and events in Scottish history, project and campaign highlights, and ways you can explore Scotland’s extraordinary story regardless of where in the world you are.
