Murder and Mystery Walking Tour of Edinburgh

This is Edinburgh's original ghost tour. We've been wandering the streets of Old Town Edinburgh since 1984.

The tour takes a look at the Scottish capital's dark side, including tales of witchcraft, plague and torture on this Murder and Mystery Walking Tour.

Visit the scenes of many horrific tortures, murders and supernatural happenings as you walk along eerie alleyways and creepy courtyards of the Old Town. Your ghostly guide will blend history with humour and facts with fables, while our creation - the "jumper-ooter" provides guaranteed ghastly appearances.

Our tours operate outdoors through rain, snow, lightning and even sunshine, so please dress appropriately and comfortable footwear is recommended.

    Pass By: Cadies & Witchery Tours, (Victoria Street 84 West Bow (Victoria Street), Edinburgh EH1 2HH Scotland

    Number 84 West Bow, down near the bottom of the not-so-sunny side of picturesque Victoria Street in Edinburgh's Old Town, is an unassuming address amongst the majesty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    In the shop today, you can find a cornucopia (we don't use the word lightly; we looked it up and everything) of ghoulish and fantastical stationery, drinkware, ornaments, soft furnishings, original artwork and art prints, greeting cards, chess sets, and unique oddities hard to even describe.

    In 2015 we also became (possibly) Scotland's smallest museum, when the shop became host to a calling-card case made from the skin of the notorious 19th-century "body-snatcher" (actually murderer), William Burke. We can't sell you that (mainly because even the experts on Antiques Roadshow couldn't give us a valuation of it) but we have produced a rather spiffing souvenir newspaper taken from our own vaults and covering Burke & Hare's trial in some detail.
