Showcasing an extraordinary 1000 year history as the backdrop to a wealth of corroborated paranormal testimony both current and historical, these award winning walking tours can be described as ‘best of both worlds’ tours.

Based on extensive research spanning five decades by author Richard Falconer, the tours take in the major historic quarters of St Andrews including the Cathedral, Archbishops Palace and University Colleges.

There is no contrivance, theatrics or ‘jumper ooters’ on these tours – the latter is left to the real ghosts!

Whether you’re interested in history, ghosts, the sights of St Andrews or all of the above, this is a great showcase for any looking to explore and find out more about this unique part of the world.

This atmospheric city saw the greatest seat of Catholic power outside Rome in Europe. It witnessed the arrival of well over 20 million pilgrims. Gave birth to Scotland’s first University. Became a major catalyst for the game of Golf – and all before John Knox had his breakfast that fateful morning in June 1559 and the advent of the Scottish Reformation.

A young boy wandered through the Cathedral ruins with his parents.
He ran up to a grave and began laughing and playing.
He then ran up to another and did the same thing.
He did this around four different graves.

His parents read the inscriptions on the graves
he’d been playing around – they were the graves of children.

“Really informative and genuinely eerie”
Great tour of this historic city, giving an insight into the history and right up to date paranormal activity in St Andrews.
The guide, Richard, has a depth of historical knowledge that clearly shines through and his ability to link the past, present and paranormal make for a great experience.

Genuinely interesting, and both my wife and I had the hairs on our arms come up during one of the ghostly tales.

Highly recommended.

“Best ghost tour I’ve ever been on!!”

Best ghost tour I’ve ever been on!! His knowledge on the ghosts of St. Andrews is immense which makes them all the more real for any skeptics. We went at night too which made it more exciting and creepy. Whether you’re a ghost fanatic or a skeptic of all things supernatural, Richard’s ghost stories will chill your bones, make you laugh, and give you an amazing look into the history of St. Andrew’s.

Galvin Green

I couldn’t complete this website without giving these high end golf clothing specialists a plug!

It’s important to wear appropriate clothing while in St Andrews. If you’re looking for all round lightweight best in the field weather gear for your trip, check these guys out from Sweden.

With conducting tours around the Home of Golf a few times every day through most of the year, i’ve spent a small fortune looking for the right weather gear with little success… then I discovered GALVIN GREEN.

They specifically make high end quality golf layers for men and women, but i’ve found they are more adaptive for purpose than high end mountain gear in winter and light enough for summer, and hey, who doesn’t like Gore-Tex! So not just for the course and their branding looks great.. I wear their black range! 

I’ve taken over 20,000 people on tours including a lot of golfing parties and GALVIN GREEN really help me with what I do on a daily basis.
ere’s a short video about just one of there many great products.

I look forward to seeing you on a tour
