These include Edinburgh Castle, and tales of it's Ghost Piper, the historic Grassmarket, that was the site of many public executions, and the Palace of Holyrood House, once home to Mary Queen of Scots and site of a cold-blooded murder! 

You will hear tales of the Infamous Body-Snatchers Burke and Hare as you travel through the dim-lit, narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Town and, in the more salubrious surroundings of the New Town, learn of the real Edinburgh character who played inspiration to Robert Luis Stevenson's tale - Jekyll and Hyde. 
Step into the afterlife at Greyfriars Kirkyard as your guide takes you on a short walk into one of the World's most haunted graveyards in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle!
