Full description
Experience the worst of both possible worlds on a tour that goes into both the South Bridge Vaults and the Covenanter’s Prison in Greyfriars. These are two of the world’s most haunted locations, so if you survive this one and you’ll need a couple of stiff drinks, which works out in the end, as your tour finishes next to a bar.

Researched and designed by best-selling historical author and award winning novelist J A Henderson, these walks combine the weirdest stories, wickedest humor, and the wildest history. Having one multiple awards, this tour proves good doesn't always triumph over evil!
