A chilling way to explore Edinburgh after dark – and underground. Strictly adult-only, this ghost tour is a short, sharp shock – your unsettling introduction to our capital’s unsavoury past.

These tales are not fit for the glare of daylight – or for telling to those under 18. Join us, and your guide will share true stories of sinister misdeeds and terrible consequences. Starting your walking tour above ground around the wynds and closes of the Old Town, you'll hear of bloody plots that led to treason and torture – as well as secret lives that led to horrific deaths and tormented souls.

To delve deeper, go underground. Is it my imagination, or did it just get a little colder?

There’s definitely an unsettling feel to our Blair Street Underground Vaults – your expert Mercat guide will reveal troubled tales as you continue this terrifying walking tour. Expect true stories of murder and hangings – all of which took place right here in the vaults.

Pick out evidence of life in the distant past – and perhaps more – lurking just beyond the faint beam of your guide’s torch.
