This tour is so creepy, it's for adults only! Learn about the ghosts and ghouls of Edinburgh's gripping past with this underground adventure. Expect torture, murder, treason, hauntings and more on the scariest walking tour in Scotland!

Join a fact-and-myth filled Scottish guide for the lowdown on the city's dark, dodgy and just plain horrible history.

You'll start at street level for an after-dark exploration into some of Edinburgh's most unsavory happenings. Walk around the windy wynds and closes of the Old Town, learn about bloody plots, treason and torture, and try not to look as terrified as you feel.

Diving deeper into the darkness, head down to the Blair Street Underground Vaults by torchlight! Your goosebumps will take on new life as you learn about the murders and hangings that happened right here in the vaults.

It might not be your imagination running wild - it might have just turned colder in here!

Edgar was our tour guide. He was really funny and informative and created great suspense during the tour. Highly recommend booking this tour.

We did the hidden & haunted ghost tour and were on the last tour of the day. It was very enlightening and nice to be able to see the vaults. Our guide, Linda was excelent. Very knowledgeable and wonderfully theatrical and that suited the tour well!
