An exploration through the dark, scary and gruesome sides of Edinburgh’s history. Brought together by the three historians who run Edinburgh’s Old Town Mercat Tours, this collection of over 100 stories is filled with ghosts, body snatching, witch burning, with all the famous villains to boot, such as Deacon Brodie, Burke and Hare, Major Weir, Agnes Fynnie and many others. An enjoyable read to a grisly portrait of Edinburgh’s past.
