Full description
Don’t miss out on this night tour of Edinburgh that takes you on an excursion into the city’s grim, grisly, and ghostly past. You’ll hear all about how Edinburgh’s ghoulish ancestors, the infamous Edinburgh mob reveled in blood, guts, and gore. You’ll also learn that there was plenty of this around, particularly at the Mercat Cross.

Your guide will tell you troubling but true tales about gruesome punishment and the unsettled spirits that roam the city, and providing tales of life and death in old Edinburgh. Some of the stories may be a bit close for comfort as you visit the shadowy places where the ghosts still cling to ancient sites.

You’ll descend into the famously haunted Blair Street underground vaults where the ghosts of Edinburgh's past still haunt the present day.

The ghoulish evening ends with a drink and further tales in an atmospheric tavern.
Includes
  • Full evening experience with a complimentary drink
