Alright boys and girls, lock the windows, light the candles and get ready for a special pre-Halloween post.
So did I have a supernatural encounter in Edinburgh aka world’s most haunted city? No I didn’t, sorry to disappoint anyone. Stayed in Bruntsfield Hotel and then hung around the town of Leith. Which just so happened to be one giant mass grave!!! Bwah-haha, really.
According to Edinburgh’s Dark Side, numerous victims of the plague were buried here and one time ‘the plague was so aggressive that half the population of Leith was completely wiped out’. And today ‘bodies have been turning up in private gardens in what was the Burgh Muir area ever since.’
A breathtaking view, grassy plains and freezing winds, they are all waiting for you at the top of bright and sunny Calton Hill. So what’s the spooky angle? ‘It’s said that witches of old would dance nightly upon Calton Hill, with a fairy boy from Leith as their drummer, and modern witches and pagans still do, once a year.’
