Tour wasn't that scary, interesting stories but the highlight was the guide I didn't catch his name but he's a sassy gay guy and possibly the funniest man in Edinburgh well worth visiting again just to hear him crack jokes

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
