Itinerary

When the night has fallen, greet your guide outside St Giles’ Cathedral, in the heart of Edinburgh, and set off on an unforgettable tour.

Wander along the dark closes (Scottish word for alleyways) and dimly lit cobbled streets as your local guide reveals the city’s macabre and sordid past. Feel the goosebumps spread through your body as you learn about the most frightening poltergeists and their victims.

Tour the numerous cursed locations right in the city center and then head to a graveyard, where you will hear tales of bodysnatchers and the most vengeful witches.

By the end of the tour you will have found out why Edinburgh is considered one of the terrifying paranormal destinations.
