Ghost Tours

Royal Mile Edinburgh

The medieval Old Town with its nooks and crannies, murky shadows and thick layers of history, make a ripe setting for ghost-themed tours. Various companies offer their own version on the theme, from historically rigorous overviews to camped-up versions led by costumed guides. Expect sinister stories of murder, hangings, plague and body-snatching as you're taken around the darkened closes, hidden chambers and spooky graveyards of the city centre. Tours typically last one-and-a-half to two hours.
