Dumfries, Queen of the South, can boast an 826 year history filled with momentous events and memorable characters. Of those, there are many which the town may prefer to forget; ghoulish bodysnatchers, grisly executions and a bizarre double tragedy to name but a few. The award winning Mostly Ghostly team will relish the prospect of revealing the hidden history of Dumfries – along with a few more famous stories – in our own inimitable style!
So, why choose the Dumfries Ghost Walk? Well, the tour is run by real-life paranormal investigators who can offer a unique insight into the ghostly and supernatural. You will be guided around the shadowy streets by three knowledgeable, approachable and experienced presenters to learn about a town with a history so gripping; it can match many of its better known counterparts.
Please note; Mostly Ghostly do not have jumper-ooters on our tours as we believe the stories are strong enough to carry themselves.
Also, in a location of your choosing e.g. your hotel, we can provide private talks where you can learn about the haunted places in Dumfries and Galloway, including some of our own strange experiences as paranormal investigators. This natural compliment to our walk gives you an even fuller package, making your events stand out from the crowd – please contact us direct for more details.
