Brand New Tour - Ghosts and Graverobbers

Something Wicked This Way Comes.... On the eve of Halloween, we proudly launch the fifth in our series of spine-chilling ventures - Ghosts and Graverobbers! Join the team as we reveal the drama of a famous court trial, ghostly goings-on in an historic hotel and dark insights into the notorious Killing Times. Woven between these tales, we'll explore the role of the Resurrection Men (graverobbers) in Dumfries and the impact they had on our town. Guests will discover a tragic and scandalous case of bodysnatching and learn the story behind a grisly execution on what is now hallowed ground...
