Discover the secrets of Scotland's capital on this self-guided audio tour of Edinburgh's eerie history. Designed for those intrigued by the city's dark past, it's a journey through the haunts of witches and the hidden underworld beneath the streets. The tour will guide you through the cobbled pathways of Edinburgh's Old Town, beginning at the vibrant Victoria Street, brimming with tales that may have sparked the magic of Diagon Alley, and concludes in the solemn presence of Greyfriars Kirkyard, the resting place of loyal canine Greyfriars Bobby and many mysterious old tombstones. The exploratory route will lead you past the towering St. Giles' Cathedral with its remarkable stained glass, through the historically rich Grassmarket, and up to the formidable Edinburgh Castle perched upon volcanic rock. Thrills continue as you delve into the depths of the South Bridge Vaults, experiencing the long-ago lives of its inhabitants, and stride along Castlehill to The Witchery by the Castle. The Stone of Destiny's legendary tales, George IV Bridge's stone guardians, and the Heart of Midlothian's peculiar tradition of spitting for luck round out the adventure. Along the way, prepare to be dazzled by gothic architecture, captivated by centuries-old legends, and maybe even get the shivers as you experience Edinburgh's spellbinding history first-hand.
