Ghost And Torture Tour (Auld Reekie)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

You may think that going on a haunted tour during daylight isn’t scary. You’re wrong. Really, make sure you go with someone willing to have you constantly gripping their arm. It begins with an above ground venture down the Royal Mile, and it’s surprising how much history the everyday streets have to offer. You find yourself confident that the hour won’t be terrifying at all… until you enter the underground vaults. In the dark, damp conditions with only a small torch for light, the guide recounts past groups’ experiences and chilling stories that have you shifting your feet nervously. Even as a sceptic it’s difficult not to feel uncomfortable in the eerie environment, and even harder to sleep later that night.

Auld Reekie Haunted Underground, until 27 Aug, 7.00pm.
