I’ve made it a habit when in a new town of going on a ghost tour. A light hearted way of getting a little local history with a little theatrics and good humour. They can be hit and miss but in this instance, it was...More

What a strange and quirky experience!! Our family group ages ranged from 12 to 75 and everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide Isaac (Dr Bell) added charm, humour and gruesome facts to deliver a truly enjoyable evening. Thankyou ;)

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
