DAVY the Ghost is on the hunt for like-minded spirits to join him on night-time tours of the Capital.

The long-standing tour guide – who founded City of Edinburgh Tours – has launched a recruitment drive for English, German and French-speaking people who think they have what it takes.

Guides must take on the persona of a real – dead – person from Edinburgh’s past, and lead tourists through the Royal Mile and nearby areas.

“Guides have to be natural raconteurs – able to scare people one minute, and tell a good joke the next,” said Davy Nish, who founded the company 20 years ago and lives a double life as Davy the Ghost.
