    We booked this tour on the Sunday as part of our friend’s hen weekend. The tour guide was a perfect mixture of funny, entertaining and super knowledgeable- she made me come away wanting to know so much more about the history of Elgin, it’s honestly infectious! She was also able to gauge the energy of the group- giving us the grizzly details when we were leaning in, keeping us going and engaging in all our banter. The bride to be had such an amazing time, thank you for making our weekend awesome!

    Truly chilling!
    We recently took the Witch Tour in Elgin with Lynda Dean, who believes that a city's lifeblood lies in its history. It was incredibly fascinating to learn about the rich history of this city, and this tour only scratched the surface. The details of the witch trials were both eerie and eye-opening – realizing how anyone could be accused is truly chilling. Lynda, our guide, impressed us with her professionalism, sense of humor, and extensive knowledge. She not only made the dark history engaging but also sparked our curiosity to explore the histories of other regions in the country and beyond. We were left amazed at how much there is still to discover!

    Witches Tour, Elgin
    Did this tour with family as something different to do for s few hours. Lots of history on the area around the cathedral and surrounding area. Information about the witches and the horrendous number of them killed!

    Great tour fantastic guide
    Fantastic and educational tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable of the area and the horrendous things done to the poor souls accused of witchcraft. Wasn’t sure it would be husbands cup of tea but he really enjoyed it too. Was a cold night in November but was so good didn’t even notice. Highly recommend to anyone with an interest in witch trials,ghosts or just history in general xx

    10/10 Highly recommend!🧙‍♀️
    Really fantastic and interesting tour! My partner and I went on Lyndas witches tour which kicked off at the meeting point outside the Elgin Museum. Lynda walked us through the wicked history of how the witches were walk through the town to trial for their death at Elgins famous Cathedral! Lynda really knows how to tell a story and has a great field of knowledge local and afar. Not to mention Lyndas wicked sense humour that had me and my partner in stitches throughout! I learned so many things about the witches of Scotland and Lynda's tour definitely has made me want to know more! Highly recommend! Thanks for the tour we had a fab day!🧡🧙‍♀️🧹📚

    Engaging, knowledgeable and genuinely entertaining.
    Lynda is an excellent tour guide - she's extremely engaging, knowledgeable and genuinely entertaining. My friend and I were fortunate enough to get a tour with her just to ourselves, and it was brilliant to have such a specialised tour. You visit various areas in Elgin town, but at no point do you feel rushed or overwhelmed with information - Lynda is very natural in the way she leads her tours. It was also great to have a genuine local take us around, someone who knows the place inside and out - to the point she recognised and greeted many people we walked past. I actually studied the witch trials at university, it was my area of interest, which I never made Lynda aware of - and I learnt many new things from her tour! Which was fantastic for me. As such, I highly recommend this tour for those of you completely new to the history of the witch trials, and for those, like me, who have been studying or interested in it for many years.

    It was amazing, Linda was fascinating and funny and is a true wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend her tours. Determined to go on all her other tours now, as if they are only half as good as this one they'll still be well worth it

    Don’t miss out on all the stories! Great fun!
    Amazing local folktales from our guide, very interesting stories from the inquisition era. Definitely a must-try for witchy enthusiasts. Amazing walk with such lovely weather as well.

    Witches tour
    We had an amazing time on the witches tour. Hearing the stories of why people were accused of being a witch and subsequently treated was very interesting and gruesome. And seeing some of the landmarks around Elgin and their history was fantastic too. I'd highly recommend this tour.
