HORRIBLE HISTORIES OF ABERDEEN WEEK
2nd of our series of walks revealing Aberdeen's dark side!

Come to the medieval university campus and hear the stories of the ghosts of auld lang syne.

There's Sacrist Downie, the unfortunate victim of a student prank gone badly wrong. Hear the supernatural situation of Mrs Baird and Dr Reid, the minister's wife and the spiritualist who tackle a creepy entity in the Chaplainary near St Machar's;

Find out the answers to the following conundrums:

Who was the Hermit of Powis?
Which Gordon Highlander killed himself rather than go back to the Western Front;
Who were the Gerard Sisters who feared direct sunlight?
Which hero of Scots legend has his arm buried in St Machar kirkyard?
And what happened to the unfortunate drunk who was picked up by the anatomy students?

Join us at Kings College and finish at the lower end of the Chanonry.
Suitable for age 10 and above.
Dogs welcome if on a lead and socialised.
