What we’ll do

If you want a mundane, humdrum history walk, this is not the tour for you. But... if you do want to learn what the tourist industry likes to leave out. The hidden, gruesome crimes and punishments? The long forgotton twisted, sadistic characters? The thousands of lives painfully lost in the cruel grip of Edinburgh's past? Maybe you are brave enough to learn the truth. Hear of witches, cannibals,…

What else you should know

As it is Scotland, weather is unpredictable. Please wear comfy shoes, wrap up warm and maybe bring an umberella to be safe. Only one small hill, no stairs, this is a laid back enjoyable walk.

Where you'll be

The Grassmarket: where you will discover the castles curse and the nasty secrets etched into the cobble stone square. Greyfriars Kirkyard: one of the most haunted graveyards in the world. It's not just about a loyal dog. As the twilight hits the ghouls come out to play! The Royal Mile: with such attractions as St Giles Cathedral, the Tron Kirk and the Old Tolbooth Prison. Not just a tourist hot-spot but a street that once ran dark with blood.
