I have seen this place on a tv program called ghost adventures and it looks interesting, I have also read some interesting things about it also, the place is Greyfriars Graveyard in Edinburgh and it would be cool to also do the Edinburgh vaults whilst there :wink:

yeah man, i think the vaults would be cool, i've heard some good stuff about that place. i think most flaunted were there so it may be pricey, although i may be wrong. you been out much recently? or you still looking for somewhere to go next mate? :D

It's a bit hard lately mate as i told my girlfriend that she didn't have to go with me anymore after our last visit to the Schooner, this kind of stuff doesn't really interest her and she is easily scared :lol:

So being a non driver gives me limitations on the places i can get to really :( it won't put me off investigating the paranormal, it's just more of a challenge :lol:

I totally agree mate it's shocking the price some places charge, and it's programmes like that that make it shoot up even more.

Hehe Most Haunted its more like a comedy show imo.

If your interest in Greyfriars then this is a good book.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ghost-That-Haun ... 990&sr=8-1

Claire and myself have read it recently.

If your in Edinboro you wanna go here its a top place, stunning views!
The convenanters prison is locked up but the city of the dead tours let you in, quite a canny tour actually, loads better than the mercat one I did at the vaults.I wasnt that impressed with the vaults actually,cant remember which ones I went to but I htink I'd expected more from them in my mind beforehand and they didnt match my expectations;not them more me but still a bugger!The tour we did there wasnt the best tho (the guide was all by the book and wasnt able to answer questions really).

Love greyfriars tho;not sure whats going on there and I didnt experience anything odd in the covenanters but this place is lovely, I love it there been several times just for the views and architecture and stuff.

Also MKC is a top place too......whether real or shite its moving to see the room lit by candles full of dolls and things left for the 'little girl'. Probably all the more moving cos its such a common sad fact too.....

I used to be based in Edinburgh when i was in army training, well just outside of Edinburgh really in a place called Penicuik, Midlothian. I must say though Edinburgh is an amazing city :) lots of history and interesting places to visit.

oh aye mate :wink:

i know of one place but they're not interested in being exploited as being a haunted location, I've tried but everything will be on their terms which restricted my main purpose in the first place, although i will try and work an agreement in the future :?
