Scottish Business Network wanted to mark Burns Night on January 25th in a unique way and to provide "access" to Scotland for the world. As such, SBN have teamed up with the remarkable Invisible Cities to offer you the opportunity to take a unique online immersive tour of Edinburgh. It's Edinburgh, like you, have never experienced it before!

That's right, from the comfort of your armchair you can sit back and be led by an experienced tour guide on a walk through our most beautiful of cities. The monies raised will go towards helping promote this amazing entrepreneurial endeavour to new cities and once registered you will have the exclusive opportunity to watch Russell Dalgleish interview Zakia. This heart warming conversation hears Zakia explain what brought her as an immigrant to Scotland, the amazing support she has received here and her plans for the future.

Welcome to Burns Night 2023

By Russell Dalgleish

After two years of Covid restricting our ability to gather and commemorate the life of Scotland's National bard what a joy it is to see so many Burns Suppers taking place.

But how will you mark this auspicious day if you don't have an invitation to an evening of Scottish fare, music and the most remarkable of poetry?

Well, I would like to invite you to join me on an online tour of the streets of Edinburgh where we are guided by the wonderful Invisible Cities team.

You will have the opportunity to sit back and experience "Auld Reekie" like never before.

But in addition to the wonderful architecture and romantic stories from the "Athens of the North," you will hear first-hand from those who have slept on those very streets we digitally stride.

Under the leadership of Zakia Moulaoui Guery, Invisible Cities supporters those who find themselves homeless into accommodation, onto a training programme and finally to be appointed tour guides for the city.

So sign up here for a never to be forgotten experience and help us support the team at Invisible Cities to roll out this program into new conurbations across the world.
