Free Tour Ghosts and Mysteries of Edinburgh
Welcome to the Clan of Edinburgh! After more than a decade as a tour guide in different countries, I ended up disembarking north of Hadrian's Wall to continue telling great stories about my beloved, Scotland. Let me introduce myself, my name is Borja Pascual and together with other great guides from Edinburgh we are part of Clan Pascual Tours. Join our clan and live the most fascinating stories of the city!
Imagine a walled city heavily affected by the arrival of the Black Death. Try to visualize a main road, called the Royal Mile , from which hundreds of very narrow and smelly alleys began. Now pay attention and you will hear “Gardyloo!” A scream that comes from above, from the medieval “skyscrapers” of Edinburgh, and that will kick off our trip to the darkest side of the city.
Do you dare to come with us?
Discover how doctors protected themselves from the Black Death , what methods they used to save the sick and what ghosts still inhabit the alleys of Edinburgh.
Walk across the cursed bridge and the suicide bridge, and enter the most terrifying cemetery in the city. There we will tell you stories of resurrections , body snatchers and serial killers that will make your hair stand on end.
