About this tour
An evening ghost and underground walking tour which allows our guests to see Edinburgh’s darker side…
Let us send a few shivers up your spine on this late evening, 75 minute, ghost tour of Edinburgh’s Old Town. The history of Scotland’s capital is one not just made up of royalty, inventors, writers and scholars but also murderers, witches, bodysnatchers even cannibals. Allow one of our costumed guides, who play one such roguish former citizen, to enlighten and frighten you for the evening.
They’ll take you through the winding closes and darkened courts of the Old Town, all the while telling about the horrific events which took place there. Following that you will journey to perhaps Scotland’s most haunted graveyard, Greyfriars Kirkyard. For the last part of the tour you’ll be taken down into our decidedly sinister underground vaults below South Bridge. This tour is perfect for lovers of scary stories and the bloodier side of Scotland’s history but is more relaxed in tone than our later extreme paranormal tour.
All of the stories told on this tour have been researched by a published historian and are all historically factual.
