Step into Edinburgh, a city of contemporary allure intertwined with a grim and brutal history. Embark on this self-guided horror tour on your smartphone, meandering through the old town of Edinburgh to uncover the labyrinthine alleys and thoroughfares that bore witness to some of the city's most savage episodes. Starting at the Royal Mile, you'll unravel why it was once dubbed 'the world's end.' As you progress towards the Grassmarket, the audio commentary will unveil the chilling tale of Thomas Weir, infamous as the Wizard of Westbow. The market itself served not only as a hub for commerce but also as a theater of unrelenting retribution, enough to send shudders down your spine. Concluding your journey, you'll traverse Greyfriars Cemetery, where tales of grave plundering, cadaver heists, and enigmatic homicides await. Note that there are stairs involved, so proceed cautiously through the historic district. While this isn't precisely a ghost tour, it delves into the city's somber past. Be forewarned, though; it might scare you to death!
