I would recommend taking the underground vault tour. We really enjoyed seeing the underground vaults and listening to the tour guide talk about the history as well as a few of the resident ghost stories. It is both spooky and captivating.

Really cool to see the underground vaults and hear some of the stories. Edinburgh is so old and you really get a feel for that on the tour. The guides are all very animated, and our guide Liz did a fantastic job of engaging our group. Definitely recommend.
