Edinburgh is a city towering with stories and Charlie’s sculpture Tall Tales of Edinburgh depicts some of our favourites! From the heights of Arthur’s Seat a fearsome dragon sleeps, while in the depths of the mysterious underground Old Town, ghostly figures lurk and criminals run riot. Everywhere you turn there are myths and secrets to be uncovered beneath the everyday hustle and bustle of the quaint cobbled streets. Explore the tallest tales of Edinburgh and meet the colourful characters of legend, lore and literature – and discover the inspired authors who call this city home. What tall tales will you discover? Find them out for yourself at Charlie’s website.
