Wat je gaat doen
If you want a mundane, humdrum history walk, this is not the tour for you. But... if you do want to learn what the tourist industry likes to leave out. The hidden, gruesome crimes and punishments? The long forgotten twisted, sadistic characters? The thousands of lives painfully lost in the cruel grip of Edinburgh's past? Maybe you are brave enough to learn the truth. Hear of witches, cannibals, murders, thieves, body snatchers, blood thirsty mobs and the devil in disguise. We will explore haunted graveyards, hide up darkened closes, spit on the Heart of Midlothian and bravely face where Edinburgh believed the world ended. You even get a chance to knock on Bloody Mackenzie's door, if you dare! Madam McKinnon will guide you through our streets under cover of darkness. She's been dead for almost 200 years and does not take kindly to modern nonsense. She will however, crack your sides with laughter over her dry Scottish wit. And her tales will chill you to your core. Our tour is 100% historically accurate. With a history this dark there's no need to fabricate.
Hello! My name is Rhona and I will be your guide under the spooky guise of Madam McKinnon. I am a professional actor and writer who has worked throughout the uk and internationally.

Months of research goes into my tours and they have recieved many 5 star reviews and happy customers. I hope to welcome you to our beautiful capital and offer a unique experience full of laughs and fasinating history.

Waar je naartoe gaat
The Grassmarket: where you will discover the castles curse and the nasty secrets etched into the cobble stone square. Greyfriars Kirkyard: one of the most haunted graveyards in the world. It's not just about a loyal dog. As the twilight hits the ghouls come out to play! The Royal Mile: with such attractions as St Giles Cathedral, the Tron Kirk and the Old Tolbooth Prison. Not just a tourist hot-spot but a street that once ran dark with blood.
