A remarkable tour in Edinburgh
Visit the scenes of many horrific tortures, murders and supernatural happenings on this award winning tour of historic Old Town Edinburgh. Under the cloak of darkness, your guide is infamous Edinburgh character Adam Lyal (deceased), a highwayman who was executed in Edinburgh's Grassmarket on 27th March 1811.

Ghost tour Edinburgh
Mr Lyal leads you through the haunted alleyways and dark courtyards of Old Town Edinburgh, telling tales of executions and torture, ghosts and witchcraft, and the notorious 19th century trade of body snatching.

Edinburgh sightseeing with a difference
Although the subject matter is dark, Mr Lyal's approach is fairly light-hearted. With a ghost as your guide, there will no doubt be a few strange incidents on route, whilst "jumper-ooters" make ghastly appearances. You can expect a truly terrible bunch of ghouls to be lurking in the shadows.

Beware! This walking tour takes place in the cobbled streets of Edinburgh in all seasons. In the interests of safety please dress appropriately and wear sensible shoes. Go on this tour at your own risk – not for the faint hearted.
