Ghosts & Ghouls evening walking tour of Edinburgh
- Take an informed, chilling look at Edinburgh’s ghostly past
- Explore the Blair Street Underground Vaults with an expert storyteller
- Recover with a taste of Dewar’s Scotch Whisky in a candlelit cellar
The night begins with a walking tour of the darker closes and wynds of Edinburgh, before journeying into the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults. Finally, you’ll retire to a candlelit cellar for a dram of Scottish whisky and an evening of storytelling.
Take your place as a member of the ‘Edinburgh mob’, which once surged in riot past the Mercat Cross. Hear grisly tales of witchcraft, torture and restless spirits as you venture down medieval closes and descend into the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults. Your cloaked guide will lead you through the dimly lit caverns, filling the night with stories – all of them true. As night thickens, you’ll gather in Megget’s cellar for a whisky – or a glass of lager or soft drink if you’re not fond of a dram. In the warmth of candlelight, your storyteller will conjure more tales of Edinburgh’s ghoulish past, and the tortured souls that stalk the city’s streets.
