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

Expectations were understandably high for a tour of what is described as “the world's most haunted and paranormally active location”.

The rendezvous point was some way up the Royal Mile, and about a dozen or so of us gathered for the tour. A couple were delayed, meaning it was ten minutes late starting, but then we were off, the walk taking us past various landmarks, including the Heart of Midlothian and the Mercat Cross.

Edinburgh Santa Run

Submitted by edg on Sat, 6 Oct '18 9.24am

Bellies will bounce and beards fly when hundreds of Santas make their annual charity jog through Princes Street Gardens. The Santa run starts at around 1pm following a warm-up. The circuit around the gardens is around 2.5km, so even the most sleigh-bound Santa Claus shouldn't have too much of a problem.
