Það sem verður gert

If you want a mundane, humdrum history walk, this is not the tour for you. But... if you want to learn what the tourist industry leaves out? The hidden, gruesome crimes and punishments? The long forgotten twisted, sadistic characters? The thousands of lives painfully lost in the cruel grip of Edinburgh's past? Maybe you are brave enough to learn the truth.

Hear of witches, cannibals, murders, thieves, body snatchers, blood thirsty mobs and the devil in disguise. We will explore haunted graveyards, hide up darkened closes, spit on the Heart of Midlothian and bravely face where Edinburgh believed the world ended. You even get a chance to knock on Bloody Mackenzie's door, if you dare!

Madam McKinnon will guide you through our streets under cover of darkness. She's been dead for almost 200 years and does not take kindly to modern nonsense. She will however, crack your sides with laughter over her dry Scottish wit. And her tales will chill you to your core.

Our tours are historically accurate, with a history this dark there's no need to fabricate!

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: During these difficult times, your safety is very important to us. Guides will be wearing appropriate face coverings and we ask you wear one too. Please remember to maintain appropriate distancing from our guide and other groups on tour. We thank you for your cooperation.
Other things to note
As it is Scotland, weather is unpredictable. Please wear a face mask, comfy shoes, wrap up warm and maybe bring an umberella to be safe. Only one small hill, no stairs, this is a laid back enjoyable walk.

Hello I'm Caroline, known to channel the spirit of Madam McKinnon to guide visitors safely through the spooky streets of Edinburgh! Born and raised here, I’m a professional actor and comedian with extensive experience of leading top-rated tours. I’m passionate about Edinburgh, its character and culture, and endlessly fascinated by its vividly grisly history. I look forward to sharing its stories and secrets with you, with plenty of laughs along the way!

Staðsetning

The Grassmarket: where you will discover the castles curse and the nasty secrets etched into the cobble stone square.
Greyfriars Kirkyard: one of the most haunted graveyards in the world. It's not just about a loyal dog. As the twilight hits the ghouls come out to play!
The Royal Mile: with such attractions as St Giles Cathedral, the Tron Kirk and the Old Tolbooth Prison. Not just a tourist hot-spot but a street that once ran dark with blood.

Fantastic tour! Caroline is so knowledgeable and did a brilliant job of telling the fascinating (gruesome!) stories. I left feeling spooked! (In a good way!!)

Amazing walking tour! Was really interesting and spooky as well as being an actual laugh! Although there is a bit of dramatisation, it wasn’t at all cringe which has happened to me on historical tours I’ve taken elsewhere - I would do it again!

My friend and I had an amazing time on this tour! Caroline really engages with all the guests and truly is passionate about storytelling! Plus, Edinburgh at night is a sight to see.

Our tour with Caroline was fantastic. Great knowledge combined with brilliant storytelling. Would definitely recommend! The timing from 8-10pm was also perfect – especially at the moment while lots of places are closed in the evening due to Covid restrictions.
