Edinburgh Darkside Walking Tour: Mysteries, Murder and Legends

1,616 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.

Took part in the Highland Games event as part of a stag do. Was a good couple of hours of events. The weather wasn't the best but it didn't matter. Was a good day doing something a little different.

OMG!!! what a hilarious morning we had on Saturday doing the mini Highland Games. As a group of 6 females who had little athletic prowess or strength, we laughed (and swore) from beginning to end! James was our leader and he was wonderful. So patient, funny and encouraging and we all felt like he made our time even more special and memorable. All the guys were super friendly and welcoming! If you’re looking for something fun to do whilst in Edinburgh then get yourself booked on this. You’ll have a blast!

Did this for my friends 40th, had the best day, never laughed so much. Would highly recommend doing this with a group of friends. Really well organised, special shout out to James for putting up with all our nonsense 🤣
