Ghost Tour of Edinburgh

It is no coincidence that in Edinburgh you can take a course in Parapsychology. The Scottish capital is famously haunted and there have been countless sightings of ghosts and phantoms.

Ghost Tour of Edinburgh

Wars, murders, witch burnings, and many other gruesome periods throughout Edinburgh's history have made it a notoriously haunted city.

This walking tour will take you away from the traditional routes through the city and into the dark corners which hide Edinburgh's most sinister secrets.

During the tour, we will reveal all the spooky stories:

  • Who was Mr. Chisley? Why did the inhabitants fear his right arm?
  • What happened to suspected witches in the 16th Century? What was the test to find out if they were a real witch or not?
  • Why is it said that in Edinburgh you can get away with murder?
  • Is the famous Castle haunted? Where is the most haunted graveyard?
  • What are those strange figures appearing in the background of the photos you take?
  • Which is the bloodiest bridge in Edinburgh? How can a railway line save lives?
