Over the next few weeks we will be asking our team at Aston Hotel Dumfries for their “Dumfries Bucket List”. Starting this week with the events team: I asked “What is the ONE thing you must do if you were visiting Dumfries and Galloway?” They unanimously agreed, “Mostly Ghostly Investigations” Ghost Walk is a must do if you are staying in Dumfries!
The tour starts from the Midsteeple in the centre of town and lasts roughly 1 hour and a half. The tour covers the horrible history in Dumfries from where famous murderer Hare (as in Burke & Hare) spent his last night in Scotland, a visit to the haunted Royal theater to a trip to the Whitesands where 9 women were strangled and burnt having been accused and found guilty of witchcraft. The tours run all year and in July/ August they are on every Wednesday starting at 9pm. Who would have thought that Dumfries’ history could be so gruesome!
