A Scottish weekend in Edinburgh

A Scottish weekend in Edinburgh

A good visit of Edinburgh always starts by its iconic highlight monument, Edinburgh Castle and this is most definitely the first thing you have to see to embrace all the beauty of Edinburgh from the top of the castle hill. Dominating the whole town, Edinburgh Castle is itself the whole history of Scotland. Headquarters of Scottish monarchs, theatre of battles and sieges, this monument is a highlight of Romantic inspiration and the symbol of Edinburgh. Alternatively conquered and held by Scots and English, this historical fortress sheltered number of British and Scottish monarchs including the unforgettable Mary Queen of Scots. Stand in wonder in front of the Stone of Destiny in the Crown Room on which kings were enthroned and which was very recently returned to Scotland.

Take a walk on the "dark" side

There are so many reasons for which Edinburgh is so fascinating and unique but for sure one of the main reasons is the incredible atmosphere of mystery and of fairy tale whispering everywhere in the town. Rent a holiday flat in Edinburgh and discover everything about witchcraft, torture and murders, discover the dark side of Edinburgh the time of a mystery walking tour and get prepared for the worst in the town of the ghosts. Discover the mysteries hidden in Gilmerton Cove and in its underground passages and chambers carved in the underground parts of Edinburgh. Although this place used to be an ancient mining village, it is said and believed that Black Sabbath ceremonies were often held in Gilmerton Cove passages and that the place would have been a den for murderers and thieves.

If you fancy ghosts you cannot miss for anything in the world a visit to Greyfriars Churchyard where paranormal activities have been ascertained since now centuries and this by several witnesses and visitors. A number of unexplained events took place in this worldwide known cemetery where from 1990 to 2006 about 350 witnesses claim to have seen or felt ghosts during the visit of the cemetery and where about 200 people have collapsed because of fear and hallucinations. The exorcist who was called in year 2000 by the local council of Edinburgh to set the place free from evil strengths died rapidly thereafter of a heart attack. Despite a period of closing because of these dark events, the cemetery can now again be visited including during a night tour and it is indeed a fascinating adventure for all those who believe in paranormal activities and ghosts.
