Meet up with "Bloody MacKenzie" and other legends in this fascinating tour of Edinburgh's paranormal past.
It is a city that has seen invasion, disease and persecution, where history was written in blood as frequently as in ink. It has borne witness to an astonishing list of terrible and tragic events.
HAUNTED EDINBURGH is a fascinating tour of the side of the city the tourist brochures don't talk about. We'll hear from workers at Holyrood Palace, the erstwhile home of the Scottish monarchy, where the ghost of the man thought to be Mary Queen of Scots' lover is said to reside to this day. Some contend she is with him in death. But that's just the first stop on a journey that gets stranger with each step. From the remains of the abandoned city where thousands of plague victims breathed their last to an ornate 15th century chapel with an "astral doorway" leading to an endless world of ghostly creatures, prepare to descend into the dark mysteries of HAUNTED EDINBURGH.
Occupied since the Bronze Age, Edinburgh took shape during the 11th century--and soon after tales of ghosts and goblins began to surface.
