Ava: Joanna. Please don’t delete this message! I got your name and number off a piece of paper posted on the wall. It was written in red ink, circled, with the word “HELP” scratched into the wall. I can’t call you; I can only write to you. My name is Ava Bell. I am working as a tour guide in Edinburgh, and last night we went out with some of the tourists to Alexandra Dock to have some drinks. When I woke up, I found myself inside this room! It’s locked! Can you help me, please?

a nice route, but the clues need some work! The pictures that go with the directions were helpful

The overall experience could be better. At least 2 hints where wrong and you get stuck until you try something else ignoring the clues. Some directions cloud be improved with pictures or more details.

Wrong directions and mistakes in the clues. The one of the Leith Library and the one of the Water of Leith path are wrong. Please check that.
