  • Take a Tour of Edinburgh's Spirited Past

    suggested by Kate Hamman

    Mercat Tours: For more than 20 years, Mercat Tours has communed with Edinburgh's paranormal. If you dare, a guide will take you on a journey along the streets and into the underground of Scotland's most haunted city, while telling tales of murder, hangings, plague, and torture. The Ghosts and Ghouls Tour is one of the more popular, and starts at 8.50 (about $13.70 U.S.; check for current exchange rates.)

    The Witchery: Near the gates of Edinburgh Castle, you'll find a devilish restaurant of haunting proportions. The Witchery attracts celebrities and locals alike, with its gothic atmosphere, gourmet eats, and impressive wine selection. Though a bit pricier than most meals in the city, you'll find the experience of dining like royalty to be worth every penny. Dinner entrees start at 14.95, and a two-course lunch special for 13.95 can't be beat.

    The Last Drop: If you think this pub's name means that drinks are good to the final swallow, you're only half wrong. The Last Drop takes its name from the last man to publicly hang in Grassmarket, just steps from this site. Rumor has it that the executioner let the condemned man have one final drink in the pub before ending his life. Drop in for an Executioner cocktail, a mix of strong cider and dark ale, and take a gander at the many ropes and relics adorning the walls.

    This is useful information. I absolutely agree with you that Edinburgh is "can't be missed" destinations when you traveled UK.
    Thanks for your suggestions.

      The Edinburgh tours are just awesome! The best would probably be the ghost tours that also has an interesting historic focus.
