City vaults named on ‘spookiest haunts’ list

Have your say

Top travel guide Wanderlust placed the Edinburgh Vaults third on the scary list – and said a night in the vaults “is not for the faint-hearted”. “The underground vaults of Edinburgh are said to be home to many spirits, and paranormal activity here is high,” says Wanderlust.

“The vaults are home to a mixture of Edinburgh’s oldest ghostly residents, from Mr Boots, a nasty piece of work who pushes people’s shoulders and whispers obscenities in their ears, to Jack – a small boy who tugs trousers and throws stones around the echoing tunnels.”

The list was topped by the Island of Dolls in Mexico.
