The Edinburgh of the South - Roadside Stories



A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Dunedin's Scottish heritage. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

Dunedin was settled by Scots from 1848, and even its name is a Gaelic version of Edinburgh. Once -- but no longer -- New Zealand's largest, wealthiest city, Dunedin retains a Scottish sensibility, with its stone buildings, Highland games, bagpipers and chilly weather -- as well as whisky and haggis on offer around town.

Roadside Stories are a series of audio guides to places of interest on major road trips in New Zealand. Each guide tells the story of an attraction along the way -- its people, its history, its cultural and natural significance. For more information about Roadside Stories visit
