                      Pocket Guide: Gilmerton Cove Gilmerton Cove Hotels

                      Scotland’s capital is a dynamic city; steeped in centuries of fascinating history, this compliments its laidback style. Whether you’re touring the city’s famous art galleries or partying with revellers in the lively Grassmarket area, Edinburgh is a destination that keeps on giving.

                      Edinburgh is also a place full of mysteries that travellers will enjoy unravelling on their visit. Many of Edinburgh’s most famous landmarks have an intriguing story behind them that expert guides will be only too happy to share.

                      The Mystery of Gilmerton Cove

                      One such mysterious place is Gilmerton Cove. Located around five miles from the city centre, this series of hand-carved underground passages has a murky past. The spooky tunnels are thought to have been a secret drinking den for the gentry or even a smugglers lair, visitors can make up their own minds.

                      For those with no time to spare, take one of the ghost tours that leave from the Royal Mile each night. These offer a fun insight into the city’s eerie secrets with a few jumps and scares along the way!
