Do you want to do the best Tours in Scotland? Well this is your place. After several years working in the tourism sector for leading companies in different locations in the UK, I decided to embark on this adventure and create "We are Scotland", from where we do walking tours of Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow. This project was born from work, humility and experience in order to make people who visit Scotland feel part of its history and its legends, together with a team of experienced guides passionate about history that will make you want to return. to this wonderful pías.

About the Tour

Learn about the alleys where the 17th century people lived in the city of Edinburgh, but especially how they died during the Black Death, and the doctors who tried to cure them with bird masks.

We will tell you the mysteries of the South Bridge , where whiskey was illegally distilled, but above all corpses were hidden . We will talk about corpses, but about the black market of corpses from the 19th century and serial killers , William Burke and William Hare. We will visit Old Calton Cemetery and Canongate .

We will go up to Calton Hill , where I will tell you about something that I am passionate about: the burning of witches and warlocks , and we will see if any of those who do this tour would have ended up in those bonfires. In Calton Hill, in addition, we have the observatory, the Nelson monument and the national monument of Scotland , they are symbols of the city, but here they are called the shames of Edinburgh.

We will walk through a passage, Jacob's ladder, which was used as a secret passage during the black market for corpses.

Nos encantó el tour de brujas con Carlos! Es un gran guía. Espontáneo, divertido y muy teatral para retratar las cosas que pasaban en el Edimburgo antiguo. Lo recomendaríamos mil y una vez!
