The Leith Festival launches on Saturday and it's on across all of EH6 for a whole week. Recently we're quite into guided tours across the city - here I don't mean the usual Royal Mile and ghost tour stuff but rather the hidden gems. Luckily there are plenty of Leith tours on offer: Story of Leith, Trainspotting Tour, find 


 the full list of tours and contact details.

On Saturday between 10am-6pm and on Sunday between 10am-5pm the Fruitmarket Gallery will be hosting its annual
