Shortly after the exit, we will descend to the mysterious oldest loch in Edinburgh, of which few people know of its existence. It acted as a sewer of the city, and was also the place chosen to perform witchcraft trials. You will discover the eccentricities of the Scottish elite and their darkest superstitions.
Later you will see the square whose pubs still remember the terrible stories about the hundreds of people unjustly executed. It was also in one of these pubs where William Hare and William Burke looked for their future victims. Many compare them with the Jack the Ripper himself. What did they plot?
According to the University of Edinburgh, the cemetery of Greyfriars is one of the places with the highest paranormal activity in the world. This university has a chair of parapsychology to try to explain some of the strange events that occurred to locals and tourists. What is it that this cemetery really hides?
It went from being the street where the most influential nobles lived, to becoming the most dangerous street in the whole city. Then the legend of the underground city would be born. Illegal activities and stories that would surprise anyone.
We will pass by the Queen’s Palace where you will learn about the stories of love and passion that unleashed some of the most controversial stories of Mary Queen of Scots time. On the other hand, next to this place in Arthur Seat not long ago, a group of children who were playing there found one of the great mysteries of the city. Perhaps witchcraft in Edinburgh was not just a practice of the past.
Old Calton Cemetery
Soon after, we will walk through Old Calton Cemetery. In Edinburgh, one of the most curious professions in all history was created. “The resurrectors”. When two Irish people heard this, they came up with an idea to get rich without having to wait for people to die. What did they really do?
You will cross North Bridge, a place of incredible views of an enchanted city on a bridge that was inaugurated under a great superstition. Why?
It was a very interesting experience with amazing stories and a very good tour guide. Perfect evening! Thanks Gema
Gemma is a very nice guide. Her stories are well told and nicely narrated.
The only problem is that we were recommended a restaurant Pibroch restaurant, we arrived at 8p.m. and they didn't serve us because we hadn't booked beforehand. This meant that we were starving and desperate looking for somewhere to have dinner.
Our departure point is the bus stop at Waverley Bridge (next to Waverley Train Station).
Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh.
