Overview

Fans of the paranormal will be thrilled by this evening ghost tour of Edinburgh, one of the UK’s most haunted cities. Your storyteller-guide will transport you into a murky past replete with witchcraft, torture, and murder. Venture into the eerie Blair Street Underground Vaults, enjoy a whisky in creepy Megget’s Cellar, and learn the city’s dark history from an expert.

What to Expect

Greet your guide and group by St. Giles' Cathedral and set off to explore Edinburgh’s atmospheric Old Town. As you stroll through the evening streets, savor gory tales of times long past: legends of the city’s ghosts, ghouls, and witches, plus savage stories of tortures, murders, and burnings.

Learn about the Edinburgh Mob riots and then brave the underbelly of the city: the infamous Blair Street Underground Vaults. Deep below Edinburgh’s tranquil streets, ghosts including Jack, Mr. Boots, and the sinisterly named Watcher are said to roam. Finish your tour in Megget’s Cellar. A glass of local whisky should soothe jangled nerves before you travel back to your hotel.

Great tour!

My husband and I did a walking tour last night and thoroughly enjoyed it! Our guide Claudia was excellent! She gave the right amount of facts, a few frights and a lot of laughs. We would really recommend the tour.

Engaging and fun! (and a little scary)

Our guide was super! She kept us enthralled with her quirkly tales from the past. Ending off with a 'wee dram' or other beverage and another story was perfect.

Fun and informative!

Our guide Anna was very entertaining and informative. The tour took a while to ‘kick off’ but when it did we had a great time. The vaults were by far the best part, however they weren’t quite as spooky as we were expecting, I suppose...More
