Many believe the Old Town of Edinburgh to be one of the most haunted areas in Scotland. There are so many stories and such a rich dark history in this area, one would have to be made of stone, not to be moved. The small, dark, eerie 'wynds' and 'closes' that run off the Royal Mile and the sealed off underground streets are full of the histories of those that are now long gone. Many companies offer tours of varying degrees of history and spookiness . Some in the day and others ... late at night! Here, a character plays the part of The Mad Monk of the Cowgate - the ghost of a Blackfriars monk from the 16th century - in front of the High Kirk of Edinburgh (St Giles Cathedral) in the heart of the Old Town.
