Delve into Scotland's harrowing history on an In-App Audio Tour exploring the chilling legacy of witchcraft in Edinburgh. This immersive narrative is tailored for history enthusiasts intrigued by the tales of trials, tribulations, and societal beliefs from the 16th century up to the 1900s. The tour begins at the majestic Palace of Holyroodhouse, threading through historical landmarks toward the somber Witches Well at Edinburgh Castle. Along the cobbled paths, visitors encounter statues, ancient buildings, and memorials, each narrating its segment of the city's dark past. The route stitches together key sites, from the stomping grounds of notable figures like Major Thomas Weir to the buzzing life of Victoria Terrace, culminating at the Castlehill, which has bore witness to countless executions. Participants will walk away with evocative memories of Edinburgh's timeless streets, a deeper understanding of its complex relationship with witchcraft, and an appreciation for how time has transformed the city's outlook on justice and humanity.
