Isabel Dalhousie’s Edinburgh

No one captures the charm of Edinburgh quite like Alexander McCall Smith in his series featuring the insatiably curious professional philosopher and amateur sleuth Isabel Dalhousie, one of fiction’s most richly developed women detectives. Whether she is investigating a case or a problem of philosophy, the indefatigable Isabel is always ready to pursue the answers to all of life’s questions, large and small.

Have you ever wondered exactly what Isabel’s world looked like? We certainly have. Lucky for us, Iain McIntosh has created a lovely map of Isabel’s home and favorite places so you can follow along as you read about our favorite philosopher’s adventures.
