Was a good tour in the fact that we found a beautiful place we would not have found if we had not done this tour. This Calton Hill. It wasn't so much a ghost tour really, more of an old history tour with a couple of ghost myths thrown in. Selina the tour guide was lovely though, it just wasn't what we were expecting.
