Great tour with Jenny. Really friendly and very knowledgeable. Would recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in Edinburgh’s dark side.
This virtual tour was a fantastic way to escape your home during covid! Our tour guide Jenny was engaging and funny throughout the event. The stories, pictures and ‘walk’ through town made me excited for the day when we can once again travel
Amazing virtual tour, really informative and would highly recommend. Full of facts and visuals. Jenny was a delight and was always available to take questions from others in the tour

Excellent tour. Jenny did a wonderful job. Strongly recommend! Some great stories and history about beautiful Scotland.
Very knowledgeable and entertaining! Jenny was very engaging and we thought the stories were very interesting. Thank you for the trip to Scotland from our London flat
Very good. The interactive tour guide was very good. I enjoyed the carnivorous cave dwellers tale. We look forward to doing this tour in person once things get back to some sort of normality.
Had an excellent time learning more about the dark secrets of Scotland. I joined wanting to hear stories about witchcraft and now have two more pubs to visit next time I am in Edinburgh. The other stories were very interesting and I didn’t realise there is more to Deacon Brodie than I first thought. Thank you Jenny for being a fantastic guide 🙂

Starting at Bennane Cave, Ballantrae, you’ll hear the horrific story of Alexander ‘Sawney’ Bean, the head of a murderous and cannibalistic clan that struck fear and terror in locals for quarter of a century. 

From here, you’ll go on a terrifying journey across the country to Edinburgh where you’ll learn of wicked witches and ghosts that haunt the city and plague its castle. In fact, our immersive 360 video will make you feel as if you’re really there and allow you to soak up every chilling nook and cranny. Will you sense the presence of any ghosts or ghouls? 

Finally, our Edinburgh haunted tour wouldn’t be complete without our fun and interactive quiz. Be prepared for your tour guide to test your knowledge, as well as your nerves, on all thing’s Scottish spirits, myths and legends. A prize may be in store for those who are awarded the most points!
