A unique and highly entertaining tour of Old Town Edinburgh. Your guide is Alexander Clapperton (deceased), who was an Edinburgh Cemetery Director during the 1840s.
Mr Clapperton takes a light-hearted look at Edinburgh's dark past, telling tales of tortures, punishments, witchcraft and invasion as he leads you through the Old Town's atmospheric closes and courtyards. En route, there will be a demonstration of several authentic torture devices, and ghostly encounters in the form of the notorious Mad Monk of the Cowgate, Agnes Fynnie the terrifying witch, the regal Blue Gowned Beggar, the ghastly Foule Clenger (plague collector) and the fearsome Highlander.
Beware! This walking tour takes place in the cobbled streets of Edinburgh in all seasons. In the interests of safety please dress appropriately and wear sensible shoes. You come on this tour at your own risk and it is not for the faint hearted.
