The World Famous Underground Ghost Tour

797 reviews
At street level, Edinburgh is a peaceful and pretty city—but the subterranean tunnels below tell an entirely different story. On this ghostly walking tour, explore historic sites including Greyfriars Kirkyard and St. Giles’ Cathedral with your enthusiastic guide, and hear chilling tales of murder and revenge. Delve down into underground caverns normally closed to the public, and learn of Edinburgh’s grim and gruesome past.

Fun little climb in the heart of the city with great views all around. Allow an hour for a comfortable hike, look around and return. Parking across the road.

Beautiful park gives way to gorse and eventually scrub. Incredible views from the summit followed by a careful descent on well-marked paths.

Decided to review things to do in Edinburgh. I've been about 30 times in my life but normally just visited Princes Street and the bars. However I decided that I was going to do something different. Arthurs seat is excellent to get a view of the city and the surrounding area, an absolute gem.

Great hike for unprecedented views of the city. Trail is in decent shape and heavily travels the day I made the climb. Moderate exercise if you are not in the best of shape give your self 35 to 45 min to the top
