Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide to Dunedin's Scottish heritage in the Video tab.

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.
