Edinburgh Interactive Ghost Walks with Haunting Nights

Every city has a few dark tales to tell and Scotland’s picturesque capital is no exception.

With its hidden closes and shadowy underground passageways, Edinburgh’s history is teeming with nefarious deeds and bloody histories, from the shocking tale of Half-Hangit Maggie to the infamous grave-robbers Burke and Hare.

But throughout the intervening centuries, there have been reports that some of the dead in this city don’t disappear…

Niddry Street 

HIDDEN beneath Scotland’s historic capital city lies a veritable warren of chambers and passageways, some of them well-known, others long-forgotten.

Edinburgh was a fearful and superstitious place at the turn of the 18th century, both of real and imagined harm.

The White Hart Inn, Grass-market
It’s claimed to be central Edinburgh’s oldest pub (parts of the building date back to 1516) and with almost 500 years of history, it’s no surprise it’s gained some ghostly tales. Stories of shadowy forms, unexplained bangs and slamming doors led to it being named most haunted pub in 2005.

Greyfriars Kirkyard

It is not often the hauntings of a local graveyard require the city council to step in, but that is exactly what happened at Greyfriars Kirkyard. Famed as the final resting place of Edinburgh’s most worthy residents (not to mention the famous Greyfriars Bobby), this ancient Kirkyard is also home to Edinburgh’s most grizzly poltergeist – Sir George Mackenzie.

After a successful career in torturing and executing the prisoners in the Covenanters Prison, Mackenzie was finally laid to rest beside the prison. But when a homeless man disturbed his tomb, the spirit of old Mackenzie unleashed his full wrath.

After a number of unexplained attacks on visitors to the Kirkyard, the council stepped in and the prison was locked up. But in June 1999 the prison was re-opened and Tours began.

The tours have been plagued by unexplained events from the beginning, and today the rantings of the Mackenzie Poltergeist endures.

Join Haunting Nights on An Interactive Ghost Walk around the City taking in the paranormal hotspots and legends of the hauntings.

Interactive Ghost Walk includes different methods of ghost hunting and history talk.
