Forgive me, I am back asking the same questions a billion times, I know. Well, let me try to add a bit to it..make it more specific..
I've got a list going of "quirky places" to visit in Scotland..someone had mentioned some wells where people hang pants..I tried to do some research on where those might be and really couldnt come up with something I could pinpoint on a map.
Calva Cairns and the Witches Stone sounds good too.
Is Glamis Castle worthy? Also Knock Castle was one mentioned here too. Any other castles with spooky spectrals?
And one last thing, more specific to Edinburgh..the tours..yes, there are lots of tours..I have seen, for instance, "Auld Reekie" tours which include ghosts and torture. Sounds like fun. However..what I would like your input on is tours that DO NOT include people springing out at you...I hate that stuff...and, living here near Hollywood I dont need anymore costumed silly stuff like that..I want to see and hear about history without people leaping out at me. Any tours that are more historical (serious) and less of a show?
And...one last question and I'll shut up...any comments about a tour of Greyfriar's Kirkyard? I would love to look around there..but again, I dont want to take a tour where people burst out screaming at you. Can this be gone alone? I do like to just wander in silence sometimes, too!
Thanks so much for putting up with all the questions. I have been doing alot of research online but I've really not had alot of time to put together a decent itinerary yet. Yikes! One week to go.
