WHY SCOTLAND IS A GREAT IDEA FOR A BREAK
OVER THE HALLOWEEN PERIOD?
Ha, Halloween: Scary movies, pumpkin lanterns, fancy dresses in all shades of zombies, witches and bloody ghosts, bunches of kids ringing your bell for that swift sugar rush we hate to love, spider webs and general merriment.
It may be a very popular U.S. import, but really, it all started here in Europe. The pagan festival itself was already a mix of Celtic, Christian and Roman celebrations. Our American cousins just went and changed it when the colonists transformed the night before all saints day by meshing it with Native American harvest celebrations that included stories about the dead and hey presto Halloween probably became instantly Hollywood cool before Hollywood even existed.
Edinburgh is the perfect place to spend an authentic Halloween – after all, it is referred by some as the most haunted city in Europe. First off, it boasts a massive haunted castle (Edinburgh Castle), it is dotted with a number of underground tunnels and its narrow streets add to the general eerie atmosphere. More than anything, the range of Halloween themed activities in the city is quite simply staggering!
E-Voyages have prepared a special offer that includes a guided Halloween tour that is guaranteed to raise the hairs, sorry, interest, of your clients. We have 6 months to Halloween, which is plenty of time for you to let your clients know that Edinburgh is the ultimate Halloween destination.
