Mitä teet

If you want a mundane, humdrum history walk, this is not the tour for you. But... if you want to learn what the tourist industry leaves out? The hidden, gruesome crimes and punishments? The long forgotten twisted, sadistic characters? The thousands of lives painfully lost in the cruel grip of Edinburgh's past? Maybe you are brave enough to learn the truth.

Hear of witches, cannibals, murders, thieves, body snatchers, blood thirsty mobs and the devil in disguise. We will explore haunted graveyards, hide up darkened closes, spit on the Heart of Midlothian and bravely face where Edinburgh believed the world ended. You even get a chance to knock on Bloody Mackenzie's door, if you dare!

Madam McKinnon will guide you through our streets under cover of darkness. She's been dead for almost 200 years and does not take kindly to modern nonsense. She will however, crack your sides with laughter over her dry Scottish wit. And her tales will chill you to your core.

Our tours are historically accurate, with a history this dark there's no need to fabricate!

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: During these difficult times, your safety is very important to us. Guides will be wearing appropriate face coverings and we ask you wear one too. Please remember to maintain appropriate distancing from our guide and other groups on tour. We thank you for your cooperation.

Missä tulette olemaan

The Grassmarket: where you will discover the castles curse and the nasty secrets etched into the cobble stone square.
Greyfriars Kirkyard: one of the most haunted graveyards in the world. It's not just about a loyal dog. As the twilight hits the ghouls come out to play!
The Royal Mile: with such attractions as St Giles Cathedral, the Tron Kirk and the Old Tolbooth Prison. Not just a tourist hot-spot but a street that once ran dark with blood.

I had such a great time on this walking tour! It was so interesting to hear about all the dark sides of Edinburgh, and learn a few stories that I would not have known before. Caroline was a great story teller and made everyone feel really welcome. I will definitely be recommending this to friends who plan to come to Edinburgh! :)

We had such a good experience on the dark side of Edinburgh tour, Caroline was such an amazing host, super friendly and the perfect storyteller. Caroline is amazing at what she does and we learnt so much that we would definitely have missed out on if we didn’t choose this tour! 100% definitely recommend booking onto this tour.

Caroline (or should I say Madam McKinnon!) was an excellent host and made us feel welcome and at home on her tour. We learnt more then expected and enjoyed every second of it. Definitely the highlight of our trip!

What an amazing experience! Madame McKinnon's story telling and historical knowledge were just brilliant. I won't give away any spoilers here but just to say, I highly recommend taking this tour.

Caroline was our tour guide and she was a very eccentric character! She had great knowledge about the darker side of Edinburgh and gave us some great stories which were told with enthusiasm and humour. Our group wasn't too big, so we had a more personalised experience unlike other groups walking around with some 30 people. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

A wonderful guide who is funny, knowledgeable and engaging. The tour was a great mix of social history and spooky anecdotes. I really appreciated how Caroline took time to set the scene in each location and help the audience imagine how it would have been to witness the events first hand. we'll never look at Edinburgh the same again! highly recommended
