Walking piece details
Welcome to our soundwalk, Festival Soundings of Edinburgh, which showcases the thoughts and memories of Edinburgh’s residents relating to the city’s festivals. This walk is published as part of the Sound Walk September festival.
Please go here using your portable device to find and stream our free soundwalk, that can be undertaken on location or remotely using the SonicMaps player.
If you are walking, you will find a suggested route starting at the Storytelling Centre and finishing by Waverley Station that should take roughly 75 minutes of walking to complete over 5.5-6km. We also encourage you to take time and reflect in the different parks and urban environment that the walk explores.
Be vigilant when crossing roads and do take note of your environment during the tour. Please leave your browser open and use headphones for the best listening experience. You may wish to bring a portable charger to ensure you device’s battery power stays topped up.
We would like to thank our contributors, Charlie, Eric, Hillery, Kelly, Lucy, Paul, and Scott for their time. We would also like to thank the Mostly Walking YouTube channel and zapsplat.com for the ambient sounds used in during the walk.
We welcome your own contributions to this walking project. If you would like to contact us about the walk or share your memories, please contact us here.
