Thrilling and lesser-known details of Edinburgh’s dark history are revealed on this walking tour. Learn how people from the 18th and 19th centuries lived and worked. Follow your guide and explore the eerie underground of Blair Street—the city’s deepest, most extensive, and supposedly haunted vaults.

Be prepared to step into a sinister world. Beneath Edinburgh’s South Bridge exists a somber and mysterious place, where traders of illicit-goods operated, gory medical experiments took place, and the poorest people lived and worked. Listen to your guide’s detailed narration of the vault’s existence, its inhabitants, and the origins of the Scottish “midden” (rubbish pile or compost heap).

Learn the fascinating historical facts of Edinburgh’s past as you wander and dig into the underground vaults of Blair Street.
