Delve into the murky depths of Edinburgh’s most unsettling past. This Halloween tour is strictly adults-only, exploring sinister misdeeds and their terrible consequences.

On this after-dark tour your expert Mercat guide will take you through some of the lesser-known closes and wynds of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Bloody plots. Treason. Torture. No story is off-limits – you’ll hear it all.

Deep into the haunted vaults

Forget the plastic pomp of the average Halloween. The haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults are truly scary: your guide in full costume, the candles casting a weak pool of light in the gloom. Watch for unexpected tales in the shadows and listen carefully to the stories of outrageous misdoings from the city’s troubled past.
