VisitScotland presents Tour Guide Tales

Edinburgh's grisly past with Mercat Tours


Want to know more about the gory and ghostly past of Edinburgh? In this edition of Tour Guide Tales, Grant speaks to Tania Dron, just one of the tour guides for Mercat Tours in Scotland’s capital. From jealousy-fuelled murder and dismembered ghosts, to witch trials and cheating death at the gallows, you’ll never feel the same when walking through Edinburgh’s streets again.

Please be aware that this episode will occasionally feature more macabre themes of torture and death and listener discretion is advised.
