Mercat's Ghosts and Ghouls walking tour is an evening journey that explores terrifying tales of tortured individuals whose spirits are reputed to stalk the streets above and below Edinburgh's Old Town.

It begins at dusk in the centre of Edinburgh's medieval Mercat Cross. Led by a professional tour guide you will venture through the narrow cobbled streets hearing true tales of crime, punishment and infamous murders. Restless spirits are reputed to haunt the locations of their former lives.

In time you'll arrive at the Blair Street Underground Vaults, where the party will descend into an extensive and long abandoned subterranean world. The Vaults are an infamous hotbed of paranormal activity, and the section of the tour that takes place here visits some of the most sinister areas.

All tours finish with a complimentary drink in Megget’s Cellar bar. Whiskey, wine and soft drinks will be available.
