The Writers' Museum – Rabbie, Walter and Robert
Literature has played such a key role in Edinburgh’s cultural heritage that it’s no surprise to find a venue in the city dedicated to three legendary scribes.
The Writers' Museum, based in a 17th-century townhouse, celebrates the works of Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson with early editions, personal effects and displays. It sometimes even prompts people to buy the books and read them.
