Venture into the shadows of Edinburgh's chilling past with this self-guided audio tour. Perfect for brave souls intrigued by ghostly tales and sinister stories, this tour undoes the city's dark secrets while guiding you through its historic haunts. Begin your eerie journey at Old Calton Burial Ground, surrounded by old gravestones whispering tales of times long past. From here, the path leads to the hauntingly beautiful Canongate Kirkyard, where each tombstone holds a tale, ready for you to unveil. As you follow the steps of bygone residents through the Royal Mile's narrow closes, feel the weight of history and whispers of the unseen. The tour comes to a captivating end at the Edinburgh Vaults, nestled beneath the city's bridges—sites rife with ghostly legends and eerie anecdotes. Throughout this voyage, experience the silent echoes of St Giles' Cathedral, the historic resonance at Mercat Cross, and the aged enigma of John Knox House. Let fascination take hold as you explore Greyfriars Kirkyard and learn of a dog's timeless loyalty, and sense the overlying stories at George IV Bridge. Finally, wander down Victoria Street, where the fanciful architecture might stir imaginations of magical realms. By the time you leave the Vaults, the mysterious allure of Edinburgh's olden days will have truly come to life, leaving an unforgettable impression of the city's spectral legacy.
