    Researched and designed by best-selling historical author and award winning novelist J A Henderson, our walks combine the weirdest stories, wickedest humour and wildest history. 

    • 1 hour 45 mins approx
    • Summer: 8pm & 10.00pm (Easter to Halloween)
    • Winter: 7.30pm nightly, plus 9.00pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Halloween to Easter)


    Nightly from the Tree of the Dead, by the roadside wall of St Giles’ Cathedral on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.

    The worst of both possible worlds. This tour goes into two of the most haunted places on the planet – the South Bridge Vaults AND the Covenanter’s Prison in Greyfriars Graveyard – lair of the infamous Mackenzie Poltergeist.

    You survive this one and you’ll need a couple of stiff drinks. But that’s ok. We finish next to a bar.
