St Andrews Tours



Please note

These are factual, historical, educational tours, and w
ith this, a note of caution to the unwary. This is the real stuff. If you’re looking for theatrics or costumed actors, you won’t find any here. Neither will you find any contrivance or embellishment, and the only ‘jumper ooters’ are the real ghosts!

This is one of the top ghost tours in the world for a reason.

St Andrews is not only the home of Golf…
it is also the home of Ghosts!

“Now part of many a bucket list as a ‘must do’ whilst in St Andrews”

trip advisor 5 stars

Fabulous night
“I have been on ghost walks all over the world and can say this is one of the best. Richard was excellent with delivering the abundance of knowledge he has aquired. His passion shows. Thank you for a memorable night in Scotland.”
