Wish You Were Here: In Victorian times, most tourists came from a tiny social elite: the rich. But when working people eventually won the right to some free time, most headed not to the romantic Highlands for a holiday but to the coast. Murton traces the rise of the seaside as a workers' playground, journeying from St. Andrews across the Firth of Forth and ending up in Edinburgh.
