Edinburgh Darkside Walking Tour: Mysteries, Murder and Legends

1,613 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.

Spent a lovely couple of hours there walking and enjoying the views, the trees, the flowers, other plants, and all the lovely smells. We spotted a couple of cute birds too. The rock garden in the Caledonian section was outstanding, and the fact that the admission is free made the visit even better. Currently the glasshouses are closed, but the rest of the garden makes up for it.

I don't know why I have never been before. It is a marvellous place. A different vista around every turn. We will return once the glass houses reopen. I need to find out the name of the red flowered creeper that was scattered cheerfully about the garden.

I love the gardens and have been going there for at least 40 years. They are extensive and beautiful. Last Wednesday we visited with friends and I am afraid I was disappointed. Everywhere you turn there are little purple notices, saying 'Don't go here', Don't go there', 'No exit', 'No entry'. No toilets in the Terrace Cafe and going down the hill to the ones at the entry gate meant a lengthy detour being directed around and about to get back out again. The Terrace Cafe doesn't have any food any more! It used to serve wonderful varied healthy food, but on this occasion there was only a woman shouting to go back and to go around the rope and that the toilets were closed. I felt it was being managed by 'out of control' control freaks. Also why was it closed during lockdown? Glasgow managed to keep its own Botanic Gardens open and welcoming to pent up city-dwellers. Please! Relax and don't be so precious.
