We first head to Falkirk to view the Kelpies which are the largest equestrian sculptures in the World. These two giant steel horse heads stand 100ft tall. They are here to signify Scotland's industrial past but also our famous myths. A kelpie is a mythical Scottish creature that take on the shape of a horse and devour human flesh.

From here we go to Stirling to meet for a crime and punishment tour of the Old Town Jail. Guided by David Kinnaird with whom we enjoyed his ghost walk with in 2014.

From here we check into Airth Hotel which is an old castle in Scotland known to be haunted.

Later tonight we go to Bonnybridge to look for UFO activites. For more details click here

In the morning we head to Culross to see it's old town and palace. This 17th century house was once home to Sir George Bruce and his family of 8 children. Their spirits have been noted around the building. The town was also a popular place for witch trials.

Then we will drive the Fife Coastal Path to the seaside town of Anstruthers which is famous for it's fish n'chips. After we will make a stop at Dunino Den, a place of pagan worship for centuries to get in touch with the local fairy population.

We then arrive to the famous town of St Andrews. Here we will have some free time to explore the old golf course, University and Cathedral ruins.

This afternoon we will have our first Ghost Hunt at Drum Castle. Situated on Royal Deeside, Drum Castle is home to several ghosts, and is a hotspot of supernatural activities. Perhaps the most frequent sighting is of young Alexander Irvine, son of the 20th Laird of Drum, who died aged just six in 1865.

This evening we go to Inverary Jail for an exclusive Ghost Hunt. For many centuries, Inveraray, the seat of the Duke of Argyll, was the principal county town of Argyll. From the mid-18th century the courts met in the Town House on Front Street, and the ground floor below the courtroom served as the county prison. Conditions were terrible for the prisoners. Inveraray Jail has a reputation as one of Scotland’s most haunted locations and a popular location for paranormal investigations.

Today we head back to the historic capital of Edinburgh. On entry we will visit Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh's Royal Residence.

At the palace her husband Lord Darnley murdered her secretary David Rizzio.

After we take a short drive up the Royal Mile with some free time to explore on your own.

Before dinner we have a walking tour with Cadies and Witchery for the Ghosts and Gore Tour. For the lighter, Summer evenings we introduce a slightly gentler stroll through the Old Town, with guide Alexander Clapperton (deceased) joined by a number of quirky local phantoms who'll tell you hair-raising tales of plague, punishment and persecution.

We will have dinner in a restuarant on the Royal Mile.
