Ghosts in the Close

By Linda Tancs

Mary King’s Close in Edinburgh, Scotland is an underground labyrinth of now defunct closes and dwelling places that once rose seven stories high.  The close was demolished to make way for council chambers in Edinburgh, leaving the remnants of the closes below ground.  These remnants are a snapshot of life as it existed in the 16th through 18th centuries.  Ghost stories abound, which makes this destination a good Halloween jaunt.  Join one of their Supernatural History Tours.
