Smells of Auld Reekie


Auld Reekie (a historical term for Edinburgh) emits a plethora of scents and smells; some particular to Edinburgh, some ubiquitous city aromas. It is the combination of smells, and how they are distributed by the prevailing south-westerly winds that make scents and smells city-specific.

Coloured dots indicate the point of origin of the scents, the contour lines show where the smells might blow in the wind.
