Embark on an adventure through the shadowy heart of Edinburgh with the 'Unveil the Ghostly Tales' audio tour. This atmospheric journey is crafted for explorers drawn to the city's mysterious history, narrated by a guide who's part of it, Old Sam, a ghostly storyteller from over a century ago.

The tour begins at Castlehill, outside the majestic Edinburgh Castle, and winds down the Royal Mile, leading you to landmarks that have stood through the centuries. You'll pass the imposing St. Giles' Cathedral, explore ancient alleyways, and conclude with a crescendo at the historic Tron. The route is designed to guide your steps seamlessly from one enigmatic site to the next, as you peel back the layers of time with each story shared. Listeners will find themselves enveloped in the drama of Old Sam's darkest secret and the city's captivating legends. The tour is a promise of unforgettable moments, from the spine-tingling chills of whispered ghost stories to the visual feast of Edinburgh's storied architecture. Let the cobbles beneath your feet and the tales in your ears transport you to another time, where history's grip is as strong as the stone of the buildings that bear its mark.
