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.
Highlights
  • Explore Edinburgh’s grim and ghoulish history with a storyteller-guide
  • Uncover the secrets that lie beneath the city’s old stone streets
  • Shiver with fear in the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults
  • Savor a dram of Scotch whisky in the eerie Megget’s Cellar
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.

The tour was well organised and the guide had great knowledge and was very enthusiastic! The tour is two hours long and although it’s very good and you see and find out a lot of Edinburgh which you wouldn’t see normally it could be cut down by half an hour.

Absolutely loved this tour, our guide Hes was brilliant. She was very passionate and got the group completely involved within the first 2 minutes. We learnt a lot of the history and then went into the vaults which I found quite spooky. It was all topped off with a shot of whisky
