HORRIBLE HISTORIES OF ABERDEEN WEEK!

First of a series of 4 walks on the creepiest, most disturbing and terrifying aspects of Aberdeen's history.

An old route revived! Learn of the horrors which occurred around Aberdeen's old medieval marketplace beginning at Old Blackfriars, once a merchant's house where the dastardly folk involved in child slavery hid their kidnap victims, and including many tales from Aberdeen's Black Kalendar, the city's list of court proceedings over several centuries.

the gory execution of John Gordon, the wayward son of the Earl of Huntly.
the scuffle outside Pitfodels' Lodging which lead to the death of Adam Gordon of Haddo, the fatal blow struck by John, the Master of Forbes
the poor unfortunates who suffered at Aberdeen's Whipping Stane
awful executions at the Tolbooth
the brutal slaying of John Sampson, the Black Drummer at Maggie Creek's Brothel in Justice Port
the shameful tale of Aberdeen's witch burnings of 1596/97

and many more.
