Let us send a few shivers up your spine on this late evening, 75 minute, ghost tour of Edinburghs Old Town. The history of Scotlands 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. Theyll 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 theyou will journey to perhaps Scotlands most haunted graveyard, Greyfriars Kirkyard. For the last part of the tour youll 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 Scotlands history but is more relaxed in tone than our later extreme paranormal tour.

Know More about this tour

Outside our ticket office on the Royal Mile your entertaining, charismatic guide will welcome you and introduce their historical character. They may be Dr Robert Knox (a very unethical eighteenth-century surgeon), Cassandra Bean (a wife, a mother and a cannibal) or Thomas Weir a satanic guardsman. Traverse the Royal Mile and the closes jutting of it; see the site of Scotlands former parliament and Edinburghs infamous old jail.

Next make your way to Greyfriars Kirkyard, find out about the legendary poltergeist and the other ghosts who call this cemetery home. This graveyard was also a hotbed for bodysnatching during the early nineteenth century. Discover how the rich protected the remains of their loved ones and the story behind Edinburghs most feared grave robbers William Burke and William Hare.

For the final part of the tour the guide will show off our section of underground. You will see walls from former houses, eighteenth-century bridgework and even the modern street above through our skylight. When youre underground though beware the long dead former inhabitants still seen from time to time on our tours inside the dark chambers. The tour ends with your guide leading you out of the underground and back to our ticket office.
