Edinburgh might be a city of culture, food and festivals, but it’s also a city of ghosts, ghouls and thoroughly ghastly tales.

Because from spooky spectres to macabre murders, our capital has a very grisly history indeed.

Today’s Big Deal gives you the chance to learn all about the darker side of the city on a thrilling ghosts and horrors tour.

The only question is, do you dare to venture into Edinburgh’s creepy dark side..?

You’ll do the monster mash

On this sinister Ghosts and Horrors Tour, you will be led on a chilling 90-minute journey through Edinburgh’s winding gothic streets, starting at St Giles Cathedral.

Led by Edinburgh expert Fraser Paterson, this is one blood-curdling experience that you won’t forget in a hurry. Fraser has recently been certified COVID ‘Good To Go’ by Visit Scotland.

Tours are in a group and this Big Deal is on entry for one person, available at 6.30pm on various dates from 15th July 2020 until 31st March 2021.

It is a graveyard smash

On this creepy tour, you will learn about two of Edinburgh’s most famous ghosts who live in the underground vaults of Old Town.

You will also meet the spooky MacKenzie Poltergeist in Greyfriars, one of the most famous graveyards in the world.

Plus you’ll hear horrifying tales of Edinburgh’s slums, discover what the city did to witches and even learn about a sensational royal murder.

We hope you’re not the jumpy type…

Enjoy a spine-tingling day out

Today’s Big Deal offers you a chance to learn about the spookier side of Edinburgh’s history on a super atmospheric ghost walk.
