  • Murder and mystery evening walking tour of Edinburgh's Old Town
  • Your ghostly guide is executed highwayman Adam Lyal who died in 1811
  • Tour the eerie alleyways and courtyards of the Old Town
  • Tales of torture, ghosts and body snatching
  • Be prepared for the unexpected!

During this night walking tour of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, a ghoulish guide leads you to supernatural scenes of murder, torture and other horrific happenings. Meet at a central location under the cloak of darkness and set out on foot, following your entertaining guide who plays the part of Adam Lyal, an infamous highwayman who was executed in 1811.

Venture through the dark alleyways and haunted courtyards while you listen to fearsome tales of ghosts, plague and witchcraft, including the notorious body snatching trade of the 19th century. While the subject matter is sinister and the tour is not for the faint of heart (surprise ‘jumper-ooters’ make ghostly appearances), the tone is lighthearted.

Bonus: At the end of your 75-minute tour, receive a copy of the book Witchery Tales.

Please note: Due to a planned annual event in Edinburgh, the departure point is from a different location between July 30 – August 25, except Sundays. Further details will be provided on the voucher.

An entertaining tour of nighttime Edinburgh - and detailed information on the darker history of the city. The ghost popping out at various locations was juvenile - my daughter loved it though.
