'Drink has long fuelled the inspiration of our artists and poets, musicians and actors'. For those who may perhaps have less noble aims, the "Luath Pub Guide" remains essential reading, geared as it is towards the appreciation of good alcohol and good venues in which to drink it. Using and explaining traditional Scots words, McHardy keeps the spirit of Scotland alive as he trawls around all of Edinburgh and Leith's drinking establishments. In a clear five 'dug' system this book rates each venue on price, drink selection, atmosphere, food and clean toilets. Based on his own experience and advised by a few friends, this guide reads as a reliable index of a wide range of the city's good, bad, classy and downright dingy drinking establishments.
