Submitted by edg on Thu, 7 Nov '19 5.18am

Edinburgh Castle's walls, buildings and ramparts will be transformed by projected light and sound in this 90-minute historical walking tour, running over six weeks during the Christmas season.

Midnight Paranormally Active and Haunted Underground Vaults Tour, Auld Reekie Tours, Review
