Great way to spend a sunny afternoon in st.andrews.. very informative and entertaining. Richard was excellent, we live near st.andrews and learned some fascinating things about places we’ve walked past many times without noticing. Good tour for visitors and locals.

We were in town only a couple of nights. Being from the U.S., we don't have a lot of haunts that go back for centuries so we always enjoy a good ghost tour when we can find one. Richard did not disappoint! Not only was...More

It’s not that spooky - just depends how receptive you are to the paranormal, but from a historical point of view it is the best way to visit St.Andrews, and the guide is very well informed.

Website says the tours are still available in September when you're there. I believe the guide takes a short break in August during the Lammas Market there.
