Explore a darker and more mysterious side of Edinburgh. Set your imagination free and listen to true tales of punishment that gave life to the city's ghost stories. The famous sights, underground vaults, and tucked-away corners of this Old Town walk expose legends and stories generations old.

The infamous Edinburgh mob of the 17th century enjoyed a darker form of entertainment. Follow your guide through blood-stained monuments and listen as gruesome, true stories are narrated. At the Mercat Cross—where important civic announcements and punishments alike were given—more ghoulish tales are shared.

Get a glimpse into life, death, and grisly medieval entertainment before making your way down to the supposedly haunted Blair Street underground vaults. The underground vaults, a series of chambers originally built for storage and workshop purposes, offers the ultimate ghost tales.

Learn about their true usage as working taverns, illicit-good trading places, and gory medical experiments.
