Roadside Stories: Dunedin, Edinburgh of the south

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.

Listen to a Roadside Story about Dunedin's Scottish heritage. Roadside Stories is a series of audio guides to places around New Zealand.
