A unique ghostly gift shop located in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. As well as selling a variety of skulls, witches, dragons and magical fairies, the shop also serves as a booking office for ghostly walking tours that have been a major attraction in Edinburgh since 1984.
In an ornate black box on the counter of our shop in Edinburgh's West Bow rests a fascinating gory relic from the capital's grim past. This original artefact is a small calling-card case made out of the skin of the notorious 'bodysnatcher' William Burke.
