Many thanks. In a grim world, right now, the Happy Hangman is made happier still to bring a few chilly chuckles into the world. Stay safe!

Pretty sure Amanda below was called Bernard on my tour! 😂 Such a great and thrilling walk! Our tour guide was hilarious, inquisitive, charismatic, and incredibly knowledgeable putting horrific tales in history into enthusiastic dramaticism right in front of us. I was delighted to know there was a website and have read up on all the stories already. Our Stirling trip was a bit of a random unplanned holiday so we were very lucky to stumble upon the walk and we had lots of questions when we visited the graveyard in the morning and most were answered upon the walk. I really want to go again as it was incredibly fun!

Many thanks GozzipGirl (and Bernard!). Adapting to Social Distancing and public performance during Covid is a challenge, and it makes an old spook very happy when people can (safely) engage in performance. Hope to see you again!

The guide is incredibly knowledgeable, funny, interesting and an excellent storyteller. It was the perfect mix of spookiness and comedy. He went the extra mile and was so great at answering all of my extra questions and curiosities. I can’t recommend this enough!

What an amazing tour. Great to learn the darker side of Stirlings old town. The tour guide was amazing especially when we were given a more one to one experience due to lack of people Turning up. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in the dark history of places. Focuses on both the scary side comedic side of history.

Thank you, Skullktid. Glad you enjoyed the show - and for our first post-lockdown 5-Star review! The GhostWalk is a malleable beastie, and audience-numbers vary - just the two of you, last night, and twenty (and a pooch!), tonight. But we're BACK, and hope to be entertaining audiences, large and small, for a long time to come - even if we have to stay socially-distanced! Stay safe. Stay sane. Stay sanitized!

From the chiming of the Tollbooth bells to the eerie eyes watching you and glinting in the graveyard (of a local fox) we had a great time with Jock Rankin, the happy hangman! Tells his tales very well, and sets the scene in your minds eye. Lots of banter and laughs along the way too. Tremendous amounts of knowledge and very approachable. I would say its definitely a must do experience if you are in Stirling. Special mention to Bernard too!
