About The Terror Trail

The Edinburgh Horror Festival have been passed the torch for Lauriston Castle’s hugely popular Spooky Lauriston and they have created an all new interactive morning adventure for families. Featuring a large-scale Terror Trail through the grounds of the castle where you have to find gruesome hidden horrors. You can also head into the castle to find magical wizards and ghoulish story tellers and lots of extra activities.

The event is a drop in event running until 1pm. Allow at least an hour to experience everything on offer. Children should be accompanied by a paying adult.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Terror Trail are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
