 Stuart McHardy



Stuart McHardy
  Stuart McHardy is a writer, occasional broadcaster, storyteller, and sometime tippler. Having been actively involved in many aspects of Scottish culture throughout his adult life - music, poetry, language, history, folklore - he has been resident in Edinburgh for over a quarter of a century. McHardy has performed his unique blend of folk, blues, jazz and rock in many of the hostelries featured herein, barely escaping with his life on several occasions. His commitment to the culture and heritage of his native land has been honed by many hours of discussion with a range of interesting individuals in many of the locales covered in this book. Over the years much of Scotland's artistic and cultural life has revolved around pubs and this will doubtless continue. Although he has held some illustrious positions including Director of the Scots Language Resource Centre and President of the Pictish Arts Society, McHardy is probably proudest of having been a member of Vigil for a Scottish Parliament. To date he has published: Strange Secrets of Ancient Scotland, Tales of Whisky and Smuggling, The Wild Haggis and the Greetin Faced Nyaff and Scotland: Myth, Legend and Folklore, the latter for the same slave-driving despot who publishes the Edinburgh and Leith Pub Guide. McHardy lives very near the centre of Edinburgh with the beautiful Sandra and their talented son Roderick.

The Edinburgh and Leith Pub Guide
You might be in Edinburgh to explore the closes and wynds of one of Europe's most beautiful cities, to sample the finest Scotch whiskies and to discover a rich Celtic heritage of traditional music and story-telling. Or you might be in Leith to get blootered. Either way, this is the guide for you. Long familiar with Edinburgh and Leith's drinking dens, watering holes, shebeens and dens of iniquity, Stuart McHardy has penned a bible for the booze connoisseur. Whether you're here for Hogmanay, a Six Nations weekend, the Festival, just one evening or the rest of your life, this is the companion to slip in your pocket or handbag as you venture out in search of the craic.
