Observe the now dis-used stone circled Pagan temple and why it can never be used again. Enter into the crypt where the plague victims lived to hear about the squalid conditions here in the 1700's.

Delve into our Legendary Haunted Vault - home of the South Bridge Misogynistic Poltergeist - and our most active paranormal area, subject of thousands of sightings and supernatural occurences.

The ghost tours also include a visit to our Torture Museum where you will witness the terrible pain and death inflicting instruments from Nuremberg and Bamberg castles in Germany dating from the late 1500's and early 1600's. On our evening tours you will see fireplaces below the pavements of the Street above where no natural light entered and poor wretches had to live there. Enter then through a special doorway into Nicol Edwards - Scotland's most Haunted Pub for a well deserved drink.
