We went to the 8:45 ghost tour and it was amazing. Our guide Claire, who was very engaging, told us lots of stories of Edinburgh's macabre past. I loved that it was mostly based around history as well as some spooky ghost stories.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
