What You Can Expect

Murder and Mystery Walking Tour of Edinburgh

Murder and Mystery Walking Tour of Edinburgh

Visit the scenes of many horrific tortures, murders and supernatural happenings on this award winning tour of historic Old Town of Edinburgh. Your guide, under the cloak of darkness, is famous Edinburgh character Adam Lyal (deceased), highwayman, who was executed in Edinburgh's Grassmarket on 27th March 1811.

Mr Lyal leads you through the haunted alleyways and dark courtyards of Old Town Edinburgh telling tales of executions and torture, ghosts and witchcraft, and the notorious 19th century trade of body snatching.

Although the subject matter is dark, Mr Lyal's approach is fairly light-hearted. With a ghost as your guide, there will no doubt be a few strange incidents on route, whilst our "jumper-ooters" provide guaranteed ghastly appearances!

Beware! This walking tour takes place in the cobbled streets of Edinburgh in all seasons. In the interests of safety please dress appropriately and wear sensible shoes. You come on this tour at your own risk and it is not for the faint hearted.


Please note: Due to a planned annual event in Edinburgh the departure point will be a different location between July 28 - August 23, except Sundays. Further details will be provided on the voucher.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Really good fun and interesting evening walk. Toojm us to a part of the old town we probably wouldn't have walked around otherwise. As it was summer it wasn't actually dark but that didn't matter. In the dark I expect the atmosphere is even more spooky. The jumper ooters made my husband jump out of his skin every time! Great value for money
