Edinburgh Darkside Walking Tour: Mysteries, Murder and Legends

1,624 reviews
The atmospheric city of Edinburgh is best explored by night, when tales of mystery and murder are at their most frightening. Discover the dark side of Scotland's capital on a historical walking tour that covers Edinburgh’s morbid past. Wind your way through the cobbled streets of Calton Hill, North Bridge, and Canongate cemetery, all of which are inaccessible by coach bus or car, and listen to stories that focus on torture, treason, and death.

We visited this lovely, cosy traditional pub twice in September 2020. Coronavirus precautions were in place and the hosts managed to adhere to all the guidelines for keeping staff and customers safe while ensuring a warm welcome and maintaining a relaxed friendly atmosphere. It is such a shame that pubs and restaurants like this that are doing such a good job in keeping us all safe and sane have had to close down again. Let’s all support them again when they reopen. Slàinte 🥃🥃

This is a lovely bar that I’ve been to many times when in Edinburgh. Was back yesterday first time since Covid. It is a small bar and it must have been challenging but they had everything set out well, screens between tables (which still looked fine ), well organised , friendly table service. It was clear the staff and owners had safety and comfort of customers as the top priority. Only slight gripe is would be good to get another IPA on draft !

My wife and I returned for another visit, having been impressed with how well they dealt with current COVID requirements, on a previous day out. Everything is so well managed, explained and enforced that we felt really comfortable to visit the pub again. Cleaning is constant, when people vacated a table, though cleaning of toilets including door handles etc.. It's not a big pub, but gives a real feel for how traditional pubs used to be. The service is first class, choice of drinks great, and interaction between the staff and visitors couldn't be better. When we were asked our names we were introduced to another person in the pub at a near by table which immediately gets that sort of "my local" feeling. Can't fault the pub in any way and will continue to visit as it's important to make sure these classic pubs survive the current "new normal" which we will face for some time to come. They were apparently well known for live music before lockdown so can't wait to sample it when we get back to normal and support what is a great wee Scottish Pub.

We popped in here for a quick drink before a dinner reservation. It was that good we came back afterwards for a couple more. The welcome and service were amazing and there was a great selection of Scottish products available. I would recommend the Isle of Harris Gin and my better half said the Sea Change Prosecco was brilliant.
