We have taken the medical advice of Jimmy Tamson (our resident Foule Clenger) and he has instructed us for health reasons to postpone our walking tours for the time being.
This will be the first time in 35 years Adam Lyal's ghostly tales will fall silent and the Mad Monk of the Cowgate’s hysterical "jumping-oot" antics will be suspended. However, we hope to be back even bigger and scarier in the not too distant future.
Our wee West Bow shop has also temporarily closed (and, with it, the William Burke Museum) but you can still shop online as it's clearly important to have access to ghoulish merchandise in these challenging times.
If you would like to support a local trader and assist with the eventual return of our ghostly guides, please purchase a gift voucher which can be redeemed against one of our future walking tours.
The award-winning Cadies & Witchery Tours invite you to join our fearless phantoms for a suspenseful and mirth-filled walking tour of Edinburgh's Old Town. Step back a few hundred years as Adam Lyal (deceased) and his spooky chums bring the Capital's grisly past vividly to life.
