Edinburgh Vaults

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Edinburgh Vaults

Quite possibly one of the most haunted places in the world, many spirits, many quite negative, remain here. Voices are heard coming out of the darkness, cold spots are picked up, shadows are seen, and mist is picked up on camera.

  1. A friend came here on a tour with his partner. Deal was he got to do his choice of tourist things and this was her choice. He wasn’t into it at all but part way through the tour he said to his girlfriend ‘don’t grab my hand like that’ but his girlfriend was quite some distance away. He realised he was quite some distance from anyone. He simply asked the guide if he could be taken out of the vaults much to the annoyance of his partner…he only shared later what had happened and how freaked out he was. So he had something grab his hand at this location.
