Gallows to Graveyard
The Old Town has seen a long history of torture, execution and death, and this tour brings the past alive dramatically with gruesome, ghastly and grisly tales. Witches, warlocks, traitors, thieves and murderers have all come to a bloody end on the Royal Mile. Who were they and what had they done to deserve their vile demise? Your cloaked guide will have the answers and will take you on a tour of discovery down the Royal Mile telling stories of dark deeds and horrific crimes.
- Where was the Poisonous Husband hanged?
- Who committed such a heinous crime punishable by drowning in a coffin?
- What Maiden’s Kiss could cause the death of over 150 unfortunate souls?
Our guides are expert historians trained in the art of storytelling, and they will lead you on a tour that is not for the faint of heart.
“Buffet looked great, Ghost Tour was superb! Hope to work with you again.”
