Edinburgh Darkside Walking Tour: Mysteries, Murder and Legends

1,624 reviews
The atmospheric city of Edinburgh is best explored by night, when tales of mystery and murder are at their most frightening. Discover the dark side of Scotland's capital on a historical walking tour that covers Edinburgh’s morbid past. Wind your way through the cobbled streets of Calton Hill, North Bridge, and Canongate cemetery, all of which are inaccessible by coach bus or car, and listen to stories that focus on torture, treason, and death.

I have been fortunate to visit many capital cities throughout the world, and they all tend to have a main shopping street. Princes Street fulfils this role in Edinburgh and, in my view, is rather unique. Unlike most main thoroughfares, Princes Street is only built up along one side, with the other side left as an open area leading to beautiful gardens and providing fabulous views of the impressive Castle. What buildings there are include splendid monuments and statues as well as impressive hotels and other buildings. Oh - and there’s lots of shops, restaurants etc as well!

Greeted on the street outside who told me to stand 2 metres from my daughter. Shops who need security guards outside the shop entrance need to pick them with more care.

It’s the Main Street of Edinburgh, shops bars and hotels. A tram runs down the street ever 15 min,busses and lots of cars and taxis. Crowded when we visited in late Aug, no amount of social distancing, and very few people wearing masks.

We walked up and down this busy street during our time in Edinburgh. It is a busy street with many shops to look in, lots of sides streets cone off of this and you can find some good places to eat and drink. If you like shopping then you will enjoy this street.
