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.

Great to see a pub operating in such a professional manner in these trying times staff were excellent and friendly and explained all the rules and made us feel at ease with all the precautions in place. Hope to return again soon

Visited this place at 9.00pm on a Saturday night during covid restrictions. Place was empty but was refused a drink because he had bookings coming in. But the place was EMPTY so if he was expecting everyone at once he was gonna be a busy chappie. As far as I could see this was just an excuse to do no work. Lazy lazy staff. I will not be in again.

Lovely little gem of a pub, local to the motel one hotel. Great selection of local Gin’s (including Boe’s passion fruit) good atmosphere, classic pub grub. Helpful & friendly staff. I’d recommend the Malt Shovel & would return

This is what is wrong about chain pubs, awful frozen food, charged at the same prices as places serving fresh versions of the same. A generic pre-made burger and fish and chips (frozen chips) that wouldn’t be out of place in an office canteen. The one positive I can give is that the ales seem to be well kept and are of good quality. Service was, as it always is, very un-friendly and to the point. I’m not sure why I went back, or why I chose to eat, so probably my own fault.

Delicious fish and chips. Lovely atmosphere! As is typical with many pubs, you select your table, review the menu, and go to the bar to place your order for food and drink.
