we wandered around the museum of scotland and edinburgh, learning about the history of witchcraft (aka whatever didn’t fit with the norm of society) before doing pendulum, rune, and chakra readings. it was really cool and interesting. our guide was hilarious and very interesting. definitely worth it.

Really enjoyed the tour. Frank has all the historical and practical knowledge about Edinburgh and the witches/witchcraft. It’s a historical tour, with the most time spent in the museum but then there is a bit of witchcraft experience too, which made it a great balance. Thank you!

Frank the tour guide is a fountain of knowledge and was also willing to answer any personal questions I had about my own spiritual practices. I paid a fiver for this tour and it lasted two hours. I feel that was a bargain! And I am grateful for the help Frank gave me, too :) It has made a huge difference in my life. If you like the darker, more grim side of history... Give it a whirl!
